I take my breakfasts at coffee shop (produce from the market and a cup of coffee I get there), lunch cooked at a park and supper in my van.

It's with the supper that I feel the familiar Desi/Indian 'Atithi Devo Bhavah' अतिथि देवो भव or in English: 'The guest is God'.

Every time I stop by, I remind myself not to expect for granted and walk in ready for refusal. However it's almost a norm with Indian 7 Eleven operators to welcome as if I stepped into a town in India.

Here, in the photo, is my used cup from a mrning coffee Bean cafe with a sleeve of the 7 Eleven I was invited to fill up hot water for free and then went to my van to fix my supper of Couscous (morrocan wheat "serial") and Garbanzo beans.

Indian feel uncomfortable when you say 'thank you' so I leave you guessing what a feeling floods in my heart each evening after walking out and what a caming start for a good night sleep.
