Mum got this real thick envelope the other day. She said it was for a wedding! Mum smooshed out the last names on this to protect the innocent.
Is that Sanjee getting married mum? It looks like her name? No, mum says that is Sajeev and that is the groom. Also notice it says Mrs and Mr So-N-So, unlike here where the names are Mr and Mrs Such-N-Such.
These names of the towns are so much different that I have seen, this must be a fancy place to have such a loooooong name.
Cool, can we go? Mum said no. No?! Why? It is half way around th world! We live in the USofA in Whiskerconsin.
The wedding is in Kerala, a State in the Republic of India, which is on the lower west coast of India.
Goodness who do you know that lives in India that would invite you to a wedding? I know you used to talk to people on the other side of the world for your work, it isn't one of them, is it? No?
Oh, it is her nephew's wife's, sister that is the bride. She met her and the rest of the family when the nephew got married three years ago. The bride and groom live here in the US, but his family still lives in Kerala, which is where the bride's family is originally from. Her parents actually live in Botswana, which is in Africa.
Whew, I don't think I can keep this all straight. Oh there is a party to cellybrate the wedding later in the US, but going to either of these would cost lots of green papers. Really lots of green papers if she had to go to India.
Hey, that was just before I came to live with you, right? Right! She postponed adopting a kittie so she could go to the wedding.
I can rest easy now, mum won't be taking off to visit the other side of the world.
