bye bye london, hello bombay!



today is my last saturday in london. it all happened really fast. both h and i are relocating to bombay for our respective jobs. we're flying back next thursday. we're taking a few weeks off to settle down and then it's back to work in january.

i'm sad to leave london after just a year in this fantastic city but i'm really looking forward to going back home after six years in america and england. can't complain much though as we've really lived it up for four years in san francisco, a year and a half in new york and a year in london. our friends tease us that we are steadily making our way eastwards every few years! by that count, hong kong is probably next in our destiny :)

bombay has changed by leaps and bounds in the time that i've been away. the food scene is especially eclectic these days and i can't wait to discover bombay's food secrets and share them with you. bombay has a tough act to follow after san francisco, new york and london but at the rate it's changing i have no doubt that i'll love it even more than i always have.

i look forward to seeing you back in january at my new blog. no prizes for guessing the URL!!

Lulu, i just checked your bombay blog template. It's cute, except for the blogger navbar on the top. It's distracting. How about deleting it? I look forward to your posts on glamourous Bombay.

I wish I'd discovered your blog before you left: we just missed each other! check out my blog, if you like, since I love London too, but I'm from New York. Love food too! Good luck in India.

hi lulu: i have been following your blog with deep interest and have liked/followed your recommendations being a veggie myself. I was busy working on my idea of building a portal for like minded indians in london.

i had secretly thought of getting you to write about your culinary experiences in london, so your move to mumbai has come as a surprise to me.

i would like to connect up, i run a boutique marketing services company (www.pro-more.com) and am about to launch bolobolo.co.uk.

can we connect up? punitm@gmail.com

Lulu, hope you have a great time in Bombay. This London Map with Panoramas has over 100 panoramas from around the city. So you can always 'virtually' re-visit it and remind yourself of what is here. Sorry, can not offer the same for Bombay (yet!). Have a fantastic time.
