I hate the noise, but I love the lights.I hate the smoke that spreads through the night.I hate the crackers made by little hands:I hate the madness of little minds:But there's food, and company, and cheer:So I am really glad that Diwali's here.

The drive down the highway was beautiful, and smooth. The weather was perfect: cloudy and breezy, so that it was cool and we had the windows down and the AC off for much of the way. We soon found out why the weather was how it was. Our agent from Goa called up to confirm that we were on our way, and informed me that it was raining heavily there. We hoped that the rain would let off by the time we got there, and drove on.
We drove past green fields and over rivers. City slicker that I am, I exclaimed, "That looks just like Farmville!"
Then we took a turn off the highway, and drove on a small road that went through fields. The road was a little bumpy, but it was so amazingly refreshing, driving past farms and fields.
The Guy and I had made sandwiches for the journey, so we didn't even stop for lunch, just munching sandwiches and stopping for tea. As we turned into the hills, we encountered mist, beautiful swirling clouds.
