Meeting One More Fellow Blogger

This month has been quite interesting for me, blog wise. I met Arundati earlier and I got the chance to meet another fellow blogger, Jayasree of Kailas Kitchen. Jayasree had earlier invited me to her place in Palakkad whenever I would be going over to that side of Kerala.
As it happened, last week we went down to Palakkad during the Easter break. I called Jayasree and we decided to meet at her home in the afternoon. It had been pouring that day and we weren’t too familiar with the area of Palakkad where she lives. We managed to find her place thanks to some Internet searching on Wikimapia and I recognized the name on the gate from the picture on the header of her blog.
We spent a nice couple of hours talking about lots of things and funnily enough, very little about blogging. As we belong to the same part of Kerala (Palakkad), we ended up finding a lot of people we both knew! Jayasree and her mother- in-law treated us to some lovely hot onion fritters, kesari (a semolina pudding) and tea (she remembered I prefer tea to coffee), all of which were just perfect for cold and rainy day. I have to say that it has been an interesting experience meeting up with bloggers and making friends this way. It puts a more personal face to the blogs that one visits.
