Happy New Year! It’s Vishu.

Raheem Residency Blog

vishu 2

It’s the New Year. Well it is here in Kerala and more specifically for Hindus in Kerala. It’s called Vishu.

It is celebrated with a traditional lunch called a Sadya, a feast of up to 16 dishes which consist of equal proportions of salty, sweet, sour and bitter items. Oh yes, the traditional Ayurvedic breakdown of tastes is still intact.

Compare it to Christmas in the west. Would you know many tastes are in the Christmas turkey dinner? Of course not. You should want to be sure your mum hasn’t cooked the Brussels to mush.

Like Christmas, new clothes are bought for the occasion and significantly it is essential to give a gift of money on the day. The money can be as simple as a one-rupee coin (72 Indian rupees = 1 euro).

 But the really significant part of the festival is theVishukkani, literally the first…

Food and Friends Part 1 

My Alone Feels So Good

Monday, the 14th of March, I was at WU to meet my group members to plan our presentation. When leaving WU, I was asked by a friend if I wanted to join her for a quick trip to the Naschmarkt. I agreed and while there picked up 10 falafel balls for a euro fifty (!!!) and some macarons. Later that night, with the Falafel balls, macarons, wine, and a jar of Ovalmaltine in tow, I went to see Francie who had just gotten back after 2 weeks of traveling through Spain and Italy. It was an ideal night with all the fun that comes with staying in with a girlfriend and getting wine drunk with great snacks to chow down on.

The next morning, I went to brunch with Francie at a restaurant/cafe/bar/lounge I had found via Yelp. It’s only walking distance from my building and it turned out to be…

3/14 Vienna day 2, State Opera standing ticket

summer's travel blog

This website has all the information you need about standing tickets for the Vienna State Opera. The performance for that evening was opera “Aida” at 7pm. The standing ticket sale started at 5:45pm. People started to line up around 5pm.

While standing in line, I was approached by an older gentleman asking me whether I’d like to have sitting ticket for 25euro. Turned out the original price of those tickets were cheaper, if not quite half of the asked price. I wonder whether he purchased all the cheaper tickets to resell? Anyway, those tickets probably didn’t have a good view, if they had a view at all.

There are three different kinds of standing ticket, or “Stehplatz” in German, which means “Standing place”: “Parterre” for 4euro each, and “Galerie” and “Balkon” for 3euro each. The best of all is of course the more expensive one, the “Parterre”. But because of…
