It's our home in Mumbai.
Is it the same appartment where we all met before the drive?

Even if it is not, Jen you have done a great interior decor!

No it is not.

At that time we were living on the 9th floor and the 6th floor flat was empty. We had all stayed on the 6th floor before the Bangalore drive.

Later we moved down there and Jenny handled the (very long) renovation of the 9th floor flat (where this photo was taken). Now Jenny and I live on the 9th floor. You must come see us sometime.

1 question though. Removing the plate with unfinished food is easy to implement. ummmmm... how to restrict alternatives?
My kids hunt and help themselves to junk food! (even if we keep in shelves or fridge!)

Already the number of views (well over 12000! - I am surprised!) of this story has surpassed the number of views of our first story together, the Christmas in Bavaria thread.
Well Sam, your writing is addictive. So no wonder in the growing viewership. Looking forward to the next blog.

Sam & Jenny, I have no words to describe how I have felt all the way while reading this story. It felt as if I was a part of it and was watching it live.

Jenny, Come back soon. Sam is gonna miss you a lot.

Thanks for sharing your life with us, its kind of motivating factor.

It's amazing how a small town appears all the more warm, beautiful and inviting than a big city with its psychedelic lights and ultra-modern comforts. I've been absolutely captivated by the sights of the Bad Nauheim. I don't know German, and I don't remember Sam's explanation, if any, about the town name, but to me it's Good Nauheim - Very Very Good Nauheim.

PS: I miss my village in Gujarat after seeing those snaps - even if it is not as beautiful in terms of clear blue skies and vast rapeseed fields, it still has the same warmth as any Bad Nauheim of the world.

Thanks a lot. We are quite proud ourselves and very happy that it is finally all done. Sometimes it seemed like a never ending story lol, with a lot of amusing and annoying incidents but in the end it feels nice to have our home back!

But, if anyone needs some recommendations or so, happy to help! I think I know ALL the necessary places in Bombay by now.

Ah, well I guess this is a different story. This is an educational issue, not one about educating your children to self-sufficiency. I am sure that many people probably face the same problem you have. I guess with a bit of consistency this can be solved though - at least, this is my experience as a sister and aunt and it works well.

don't bring junk food to home. seriously, you can't keep your kids off soda if you keep gulping one every few hours. same goes for alcohol, smoke and drugs...a bigger problem in US. Not just the parents, the society as a whole makes it a sneaky but easy fun activity.

let's take this discussion to the parenting section.
