Birthday wish

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Boys, Childhood, India, Kids, Parents

  Some want to have a nice dinner for their birthday; some want to go shopping, and this boy wanted to go swimming in a pool. Swimming pools and India don’t really belong together. But for little boy’s birthday wish, mothers have to make possible everything, even in India. Of course, our little green paradise […]

Sweet VIP box

  “Mom, where did you put my swimming suit? Where did you put my wooden gun and my fishing net?” Every half a day, I’m looking for something I put away a few days ago or more. Two teenagers drop a lot of items at places where they’re not meant to be. And one has […]

Hot chocolates in Delhi

Posted Leave a commentPosted in India, Thinking

  This is India, too. You won’t believe that this picture hasn’t been taken in London, Paris or Rom. And it wasn’t a five star hotel. It was a coffee shop in the quarter of the Tibetan colony in Delhi. How come that this coffee shop knew what is modern art in serving things? I […]

Enjoying the moment

  Spending two days in an Indian train might be unimaginable for Swiss people, and this with two kids who like to move every minute. But no worries! There is so much going on in such a train: So many different people getting in and out, so many sellers of various sweets, drinks or different […]

Exciting life abroad

Posted 6 CommentsPosted in Boys, India, Switzerland, Thinking

  Returning from India we stopped for a few hours in Abu Dhabi. This airport is a melting pot, which I think is very enriching: you can find so many nationalities, so many ways of dressing and so many different faces. My boys feel very comfortable in such a surrounding. And I hope they will […]

Real friends

  We didn’t have a lot of space in our friend’s kitchen because it was their living and sleeping room at the same time. But it felt extremely cozy and my boys loved it. Nobody’s kitchen tasted better than Karma’s. Was it because the preparation and cooking took hours while we were talking, playing games, […]

  Two days on this Indian train. An exciting journey from New Delhi to Kerala. So many different people, old and young ones, talkative and silent people. Being busy with themselves or interested in getting to know others. The most touching picture I took with me was this flower garland. Someone fixed it to protect […]

Smiling colors

Posted 1 CommentPosted in India, People, Switzerland, Thinking

  There are colors everywhere in India. I love it and I often find color combinations, which I had never dreamt of in Europe. Wherever I walk, I’d love to take pictures and catch those colors. They are smiling at your face and you cannot do anything but smiling too. Here in Europe, everything is […]

Difficult question

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Boys, India, Switzerland, Thinking

  Children don’t need a lot. A hot noodle soup in a tiny Tibetan restaurant in India makes them more than happy. Back in Switzerland, it is much more difficult. There are so many more things. There is a school friend who has got his own iPhone; there is another friend who has his own […]

Point of view

  Green isn’t the color I like very much. But when I saw this lamp in India, I changed my mind. It doesn’t often happen that I change my mind. I like to stick to the things I am used to. Since years I keep this painted wooden elephant from India in my kitchen, the […]
