Weekend Exploits and a Movie













































It was pouring in Chennai, I skipped lunch, see how I made up instead. I had brown bread with grilled Italian vegetables and balsamic vinegar. A black currant mousse cake and hot chocolate. The sandwich, was the best of the lot.I didn't like the Hot chocolate though. So for a quick bite head out to the French Loaf Anna Nagar.The place is quite cozy .

Later that night I watched a true Russian movie called The Italian(2005) directed by Andrei Kravchuk. The story is about illegal adoption in Russia, and a child's quest to find his birth mother. Vanya is the name of the boy who dares all odds to finally find his mother. He even learns how to read to achieve his mission. I really loved the locales in and around the orphanage. Do check it out if you want a break from commercial cinema.
