Being in London, that too when FIFA World Cup was going on in full swing – what would you expect at all the outlets – crowd, crowd crazy crowd noise noise and more noise. So what does a non Football crazy person like me do…. I had done my share of Football craziness last night, what I was looking at was a slightly slower atmosphere less charged, I needed to recollect my thoughts and prepare myself. And yes most importantly when you are meeting friends after 18 long years, the same friends you had taken the first international trip, you would have a lot to catch up
