Life on a Refrigerator

Suma tagged couple of weeks ago on the stories told by my fridge. Take a look.



It shows many places that we have visited. There are photos of how my kids looked when they were 2 years old (which is not too long ago). There is a picture of me and my daughter(next to the doll in top left corner) in a county fair. Me and little A were pretty excited as this was the first fair we were attending. I had no expectations but by the end of 3 hours, we had won 20 soft toy as prizes. It was so much for us to carry that we had to get hold of an unused garbage bag to put in all the toys. Incidentally all these soft toys were nice and different. My son at that time was 3 months old and we surprised him by showing a whole soft toy jungle. Since then we have attended 2 more county fairs but no such luck.

Travel makes one young and liberal. We come to learn new culture, get a taste of new cuisine and experience the life of locals. Of the 28 Indian states and 7 Union territories, I have visited 12 of them and lived in one of them. Of the 50 US states, I have visited 20 and am living in one. Hopefully I will be able to cover many, if not all the 195 countries in this life.

I am very excited about collecting a souvenir where ever I go, fridge magnets if possible. In fact I would like to have a world map and fill in the places we have visited with a souvenir brought from there. I remember once when visiting Sumana in Chicago, I drove everyone crazy shopping for an appropriate souvenir. People like to collect different things, one person I know likes to collect caps from places visited and the other likes to collect Tshirts. What do you like to collect?

I pass on the tag to Monika, Prats, Sumana, Arc, Archana and anyone else who would like to pick it up.

PS: I took the photo from my phone camera. Will post a clearer picture taken from a regular camera soon.

I just love the title of this post ...and those magnets too...

i do hope you visit as many places as you can...but you better have a huge fridge at teh end of it all...to accomodate those 195 magnets :D

i like to collect miniatures...tiny pots, tiny glasses etc...can be a pain esp when you move...

and its been a long time ...hope things are okay?

That is so neat...now one will have a better reason to buy a bigger fridge and still stay healthy ;)

and about the travel - so agree....I have been lucky to travel almost all makor cities in India except the far northeast and here to in the US have seen most of the major places and states...

but I never collect souveniers - dunno why - I just collect photos

That looks to me like one well decorated fridge. I do remember we went out in the snow to collect the souvenir. Brings back wonderful memories and good old days not too long ago. Will take up the tag.
