The Accidental Tourist

I am still fuming

The regal looking lady shows off her complimentary copy of "The Witch of Portobello"..signed... proudly. And she got it yesterday at a private function held at the XVA gallery cafe....courtesy of the TATWEER group.

We were talking about the author only couple of days ago....and get this...she wasn't even invited for ..i stressed again...private function! And get this again...she wasn't even planning to be at the cafe...a stone throw away from my dwelling all! It must be her destiny! She just happened to be passing by and got invited in by the ushers. Heard from flow of champxxxx!

By the way, the regal looking madam is a certified tango, salsa instructor..and her forte is to organise shows fusing orchestra with tango dance...etc brilliant idea! Do you know she actually did one in Germany (her country of origin) with the legendary diva Omara of Buena Vista Social Club? That's real cool!

Anyway, good luck to the lucky 200 who will get to meet the author at the Battuta today.

Don't worry, the author is overrated ;) You're not missing a thing!
