Madness in Mumbai

Here at home with random twinges of annoyance from my temperamental tummy. I guess this unpleasant feeling is something I should be thankful for as it gives me something to hold onto, and reminds me that the last 8 days have not been a fantasy. They were real.

Pain is Temporary

Yesterday, I was running with a friend. It was so long and arduous run, I reached the point where I could separate the burn in my thighs from the cognitive process that commanded 'just keep running'.

Sitting on a beige brown seat, a stripe amongst the interlacing and repeating brown and beige-brown stripes of seats, inside boarding gate D40. D40..
