the last week or so…

So… the other day (I don’t remember exactly when), but sometime last week i mentioned to Indra that I wanted some mexican food… well, we put it off as neither of us were feeling up to going out. Then a few days later we went to Kurry Klub and ordered mexican food. We ordered a chicken burrito and a quesadilla. Well… what we got was *NOT* mexican, but Indian-mex. The burrito was some sort of chicken and bean mix, with some indian spices (i’m not sure which ones, so don’t ask!) that was made with a Rumali Roti (made with corn flour) that was definitely not a regular tortilla. Oh, yeah, and it came with some “sour cream” and some salsa… the salsa was good, although a bit sweeter and milder than I would have liked. Then we had the quesadilla… the quesadilla was all just veggies, no sauce, no cheese… just bell peppers, onions and other veggies. Oh, yes, and we had some “mexican” fried rice, which the waiter didn’t want to serve us because, “its just rice sir, very dry.” It was made with garlic, green onions, and cilantro, and ended up being like the best thing we ordered that night. It was definitely interesting, and I’m not sure I want to experience that again… I think I will just wait until my next trip to the states, and eat plenty of mexican food!

Today I had to go to see a dermatologist because of some infection I have on my chin, and since I was running late and knew exactly where (ok, well… the area) where I needed to go, and it was starting to rain, I took a taxi. Well… usually I get taxi drivers who speak bengali and that I can communicate where I need to go (even with my very limited bengali skills)… well, this one today didn’t speak bengali, but Hindi. But not only did he not speak bengali, he understood my english better than my bengali. I was surprised, but managed to get where I needed to go without being taken for a ride. =)
