The green banana leaf is still vibrant in my mind. That was the design of the marriage invitation Gopi gave me a week earlier.

My first Tamil wedding. It started so early in the morning I skipped all my usual Yoga etc... Just jumped into the best clothes I could find in my backpack and streamed into the dawn Gandhi road. The shops were still closed.

When I heard a call, I turned around to see the whole Gopi family in the very best of Sarees and Gopi himself showing off his sateen collar shirt.

Why this photo uploaded today?

An hour ago, my Tamil friend stopped by my table in the Los Angeles coffee shop and after talking about vacation days he whispered: "I'm going back to India for a month". "A month" I asked, "what will you...", I'm getting married" he said before I could complete my sentence.
