I loved the night smells and your favorite foods, it made India come alive a little bit for me this morning.

I saw Quantum last week also. And I rarely go out to movies.

I liked the perfumed image you gave too, even though I haven't smelt a mahogany flower the others popped into my nose. Did you enjoy Quantum of Solace?

Usha: Proof was really sweet. Stayed in my mind for quite a while.
PHST: Thanks :)
Bimimbie : The mahogany flowers have an incredible perfume--very delicate. About Q of S, well, i'm from an older generation when the Bond movies had a tongue-in-cheekiness about them. Now Bond seems to take himself so seriously and is very violent!
