. We had pita bread and humus at a Greek restaurant and spent time catching up on our lives. I was happy to see the genius from my IIM days doing well for himself (both professionally and personally). He showed me pictures of his new born son and his daughter and I regretted not having taken out the time to go visit him at his home. We then strolled around the square and had delicious cold coffees at a nearby cafe. When it was time to part, I felt excited about the prospect of him coming back to India and us accomplishing something great together.
Realizing the need to start working on my Spanish I finally got around to picking up the language (Language Dynamics - Spanish) book and mp3s I had already purchased. Enjoying the way the lessons were structured, the language itself and the challenge of learning new vocabulary I picked up quite a bit in these 4 days. I might not be ready to have a meaningful conversation yet, but atleast enough to break the ice! I also plugged some lacunae in my itinerary and spent all remaining time in contacting all paragliding outfits and pilots in South America so as to maximize air time during my travel. Eagerly awaiting the weekend, hoping to replicate last weekend's performance, somewhere deep down I also felt that I would miss the time spent here with Aditya. On the 26th, Satish (a friend of mine from IIM) and I spent a nice evening in the heart of Covent Gardens
