A taste of the Raj, with salt collector rim
Birthday card and candles
Had a delayed birthday today, with Elaine, Gaia and Hania. G and H brewed up a fruit-based cocktail that apparently livened up the Raj times, with salt crystals around the rims of the glasses. Couldn’t help remembering Gandhi’s extraordinary march to the sea, where he boiled salt water in protest against the British salt tax. Delicious, though.
Sat them down later to watch again the Grammy’s celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the first appearance of The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, The Night That Changed America, with Paul’s rendition of Happy Birthday being a highlight in the circumstances.
