India and Africa

The elephant is both Indian and African.  My wife is both Indian and African.  Her ancestors came from Gujurat and Kutch.  She was born in Mombasa, Kenya.  Before me is a little elephant decorated Indian-style and upon his back is a green candle, pine scented.  Outside my window is a snow-globe world.

Christmas dinner:
on the table biryani
and real chutney
