It’s been barely four days, since I last spoke to you folks. But it seems like ages.
The trip was everything I had hoped it would be. And more. I met tons of family, had kilos of great food and soaked in the lush greenery and sticky heat that my “hometown” (different from my “home”) offered. It was akin to being the proverbial “prodigal daughter”. I was welcomed with open arms and willing smiles. I was spoilt for choice in terms of homes, food, people and places.
I have vowed to never let this happen again. Where I stay away for so long. Family is a blessing which should not be taken for granted, I realize.
The train ride back has drained even the reserve energy within and Lil’ Z must be wondering why she is waking up at a new place every morning. Probably the reason for her uncharacteristic crankiness.
I better snooze for a bit. Am back to work from tomorrow, after a very long hiatus.
Another era commences.
Will share more soon.
