Because I promised myself I would write today

One of my favourite parts of this trip is making use of gifts from friends. Jaison’s loan of a suitcase with wheels; merlin’s backpack from 2005; the surprise moleskine from Faye last year; Ketaki’s hurried parcel of warm things and premature birthday goodies; gloves from Kiran. Little items of faith that say, “Quit whining and go do something. We’ve got your back. We’ll bridge the gap. We will facilitate.”
Ketaki once said to me when I was moping about not having money to travel, “But you have friends!”
Indeed. If you guys ever need a kidney, I will personally cut merlin up.
