Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Feline frolics

Cats are an underclass in India, a serious minority, hardly seen, hardly heard. You have to ask yourself why and perhaps the answer is the desi dogs that are SO prolific the poor cats dont stand a chance.If you ask around the answers are that Indians think that cats are carriers of bad luck and disease. It is particularly bad apparently if a black cat crosses your path. However on the occasion that I have seen them I have to say they are adventurous, plucky and different.
This is a cat in Kaziranga National Park, in Assam in NE India, who didnt think twice in the few minutes the jeep was parked to climb inside and find a tasty snack.  
Even more impressive for me was this cat that I saw in a warden's hut. There are such things as Leopard cats, perhaps this is one of them. What an astonishing cat this is.
There is a book entitled "Why are there no cats in the Bible"
The sequel could be "Why are there no cats in India !"
