Hyderabad is the capital of southern India’s Telangana state. Hyderabad was known as a pearl and diamond trading place, and it continues to be known as the “City of Pearls”. The city is famous for biryani and traditional bazaars. All the bazaars meet together in the middle at a beautiful monument called “The Charminar”.

Yesterday we threw a special birthday party for a friend of us. It was special because this birthday girl wasn’t with us in Belgium. She is a Chinese girl, doing her phD in Belgium, but went back to China for summer vacation and is still there… Since some of our other expat friends are back in town as well, so we decided to throw a party for her anyway since she’s this very funny girl, often forgets our meetups, even her own farewell party.
