Flag Day Dinner for India
The dinner plan for Flag Day night, if we were posted to India, had been Tandoori Nights in Clarendon or Jyoti in our neighborhood. But because Ann and Mike were staying Old Town Alexandria and our neighborhood, Adams Morgan, is crazy on a Friday night, we decided to look up Indian restaurants in the Alexandria area on Mike's Blackberry. We found the Bombay Curry Company, which I vaguely remembered hearing about.
It was a great choice, even better than the other two possibilities. When we arrived, a 138th class member assigned to Mumbai was already eating there. Our waiter was Bengali and was very enthusiastic about our post. He told us the food was very good in Kolkata and that we should watch out for the mosquitoes. We will probably be back before we leave.
