About Me

“I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the culture of all lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any.” - Mahatma Gandhi

I love cooking and if you are hosting me or if I am hosting you.. there can be an Indian meal involved. I carry some spices with me as I travel.
