i just got back from 12 hours of traipsing around rural west bengal. it was my first foray into exploring our branches outside of the metro area – which meant a whole new look and feel to poverty.
i’m literally exhausted. i have a layer of dirt so thick on my face that i look like i’ve just stepped off a 7-day 6-night royal caribbean cruise and i have a headache that could cut nails. but, i just had to summon up my last tidbits of strength to post the below pictures for you. (i’m so selfless)
because my brain honestly can’t convey all the things i saw today, i will sum it up like this:
my old boss (from the halifax days) had a deer – a f*&king deer – break through a plate-glass window at one of his stores yesterday morning. apparently it scared the bejesus out of everyone – a natural reaction i suppose.
i emailed him to say sorry about the deer and all, and this was his 2-word response:
i feel confident that his response also doubles as my reaction to today’s events. if i ever get enough strength to relive them – i might tell you the stories someday. but for now, a few choice shots – picture, not drink – will have to do.
