About Miss R for Rachetta

Is it Attention Deficit Disorder or is it just the normal trappings of being a Gemini? Whatever it is, Miss R for Rachetta needs to change her surroundings like most people need to change their knickers. She sometimes even changes her knickers like most people change their knickers. After leaving university and living for too many years in Cambridge, conveniently close to Stansted Airport, she decided to haul ass and move to an unknown location in Japan...a small place called Gifu which every Japanese person assured her was 'countryside'. So, she set off to her rice paddies wondering if they had lettuce and mayonnaise in the Land of the Rising Sun, and arrived in a city of 400,000 people. Yes folks, that, in Japan, is 'countryside'. Intending to go for a year, she stayed for four and experienced many unique situations during her time there which she's sure she'll tell you about in due course and possibly after a couple of bottles of cheap red wine. She currently resides in Taranto, Puglia - in the heal of Italy - teaches English as a Foreign Language, enjoys cooking, eating and any kind of water based activity. She is also starting to feel a little bit schizophrenic after finishing the second paragraph about herself in the third person singular and will sign off before she turns into a gollum-like character that eats sashimi without bothering to take the head off the fish first.

The grass is greener, because it rains!

Sitting in my bed and listening to the torrents of rain hit the tarmac, occasionally to be overshadowed by a roll of thunder that shakes the windows as if the very ground under our feet were at war with the buildings above, I think to myself, why…why did I move to the south of Italy?(…)

A Brief Passage Through India Part 2: Benaulim, Goa

A Brief Passage Through India Part 2: Benaulim, Goa

Sleepy towns and dodgy food. Alighting the train in Margao in Central Goa after the thirteen-hour journey south from Mumbai, my friend and I continued to the nearby beach resort of Benaulim where we had decided to pass a night or two before heading up North. A guesthouse called Rosario’s provided us with reasonable accommodation(…)

Flyer and Fryer. The Presidental Thanksgiving Turkeys

Wanna know a hilarious bit of American culture that’ll make you wonder how on God’s Green Earth it’s been kept a secret from you until now! If you already know about it, just chuckle along for the ride! One hungover Thanksgiving Day about seven years ago, I woke up on my friends’ sofa in Japan.(…)
