Awesome indian Pakistani food at my cousins wedding in albany

At my cousins place in albany on the memorial day weekend.celebrations are on for a ore wedding mehndi and reception.and of there is something that one can't get enough of is the awesome food that has been prepared by my cousins mom.they are originaly from pakisan (so that makes us truly a cross border Indian pakistani family).now north Indian mughlai food is great and shares a lot of commonalities with the Pakistani cuisine but there are differences in the style and spices used in quite a few dishes.and they taste awsome.sincebi have come I have ben feasting on chicken bhujia (ground chicken fried with green peppers and tomatoes). Then last nite I feasted on a staple dish -rice with rajma (kidney beans cooked in spices. Also called pothi on punjabi).and not to forget the juciy and delectably delicious kofas(meatballs cooked in rich spices )

And all this when the mehndi is yet to begin !! Will be posting pics of the food and of course the celebration pics .

Blogging using mile high Internet in the Sky. GoGo In Flight Wi-fi on Delta Rocks

Yes! My first blog from way way up in the sky. I am comfortably looking down from 33,000 feet as our Delta Flight cruises above the Potomac river with vast lush green views of the surrounding region on a flight from Atlanta to New York.

I have not been updating this blog for sometime (Lots of exciting things have happened recently. For example, an adrenalin pumping trip to Colorado and Moad, Utah) but this was too exciting to not blog about. Didnt know Delta had In Flight Wifi. So for $10/flight you can actually get a pretty decent Internet Connection and connect with folks back on the ground. GoGO IN flight Wi-fi rocks. But i really dont understand the need for a detailed registration - just keep it simple folks - pay and go !

The captain just announced that we are about to land so i need to go. Okay fellas will be on earth shortly !
