... after I stopped answering his messages due to the lack of wifi.. I quickly tried to explain about the wifi cutting out etc, but I was also in a mad rush to meet the Spanish couple who would safely walk with me to the Motherhouse for morning mass and then work.

Now don't get my wrong, I don't want to live with my parents until I am 60, nor do I want them to live with me (as I am sure they don't either) but here in India everyone looks after eachother and lives either with, or within close proximity to one another.
