Please ignore my kindergarten style handwriting!

If you live on the West Side of Columbus, you most likely know Hodji. Hodji (real name Sanjay) is a friendly owner of a popular, local Carry Out and always has a wise Mr. Miyagi-esque story to tell while you are paying for a pack of gum. Hodji has been a dear friend to me the last three years I worked as a neighbor beside his shop. Now, after 23 years, Hodji is selling his store and returning to his home in India to visit. I will miss my friend and hearing all of insights to life's mysterious questions as well as his answers to the less than serious questions like "why do West Siders still have mullets?"

If you get a chance please check out a lovely review on my blog on Girl Reviews Things. I admire and I am jealous of Anastasia's way with words when she creates her reviews. She writes a great deal of detail but keeps you entertained as you are reading and never bored. I find Anastasia's blog to be relateable and her reviews to be helpful, easy to read and informative.
