The distant between each couple is the maximum of space they could have. I think. Today it is a bit more crowded I am sure. Behind every corner in ever niche you can find them. Close together, far away, some are holding hands.  Some are just walking close together.

Osho park is in koregaon park. A park full of plants and water, small ponds, little rivers surrounded by old seating places and covered by trees. And in between a lot of couples.

I saw this already in Dhaka, a lot. Parks is one of the public spaces where couples meet up. Can meet up. It is kind of private but not in their own spaces. That would be inacceptable. I assume.

A young guy was talking to me, after I slept. He was interested, curious, chatted a while, a bit about that and that. At the end he wanted to have a picture. I mad a joke. Don’t introduce me to your friends as your new girlfriend. He took it back, immediately, was almost shy.

I made him take the image. nothing to worry. I understand. A memory. He told me that he would help me anytime, if I have a problem.

I had this before on the train station. I thought he was nice. I said we should meet up, with the guy on the train. Just because I wanted to be nice and meet up, have a chat. After neha talked with me I was unsure. I would not be liked to be seen as a white easy girl. That’s what they think, neha says. So I did not call him up. After I promised him.

I am feeling terrible about it. not keeping promises. it is a bad habit. One thing I dislike about English people. They say it but do they keep it. now I understand. Not because of that, but because of the looseness. I did not keep my promises.

The guy in the park got his number, he was very shy, looked around, felt he was observed, did something wrong. I gave him the number, said good bye and left. Later on I wrote the guy from the train station. I apologized. Explained, about habits apologized.
