After what was nothing short of absolutely wonderful three weeks of vacation, it was coming back time yesterday. The flight was at 8.40 p.m., so got to the BIA at about 6 in the evening. And it was nice meeting a random guy who turned out to be a college mate.
On the flight, I got a window seat but usually I prefer aisle as I can get up, go to the washroom or just wander around without bothering your neighbor. Also you can stretch a bit as well. And luckily, there was a Muslim guy next to me and he asked whether he could be the window seat for a couple of minutes so that he could pray. I gladly agreed and said that he could keep it if he wanted. So, I could swap mine with him cos he preferred the window.
Still my whole body was aching after a few hours and I was like turning this way and that on my seat. Could hardly sleep, so I got up, grabbed my pillow and bed sheet (or should I say seat-sheet?) and just wandered around to see if there were a couple of adjacent vacant seats. Finally found a couple at the very front of the cabin so settled there - my back to the window and feet on the other seat - and had a good couple of hours' sleep.
When I woke up, it was the sunrise and was an absolutely breathtaking sight! Below was a sea of clouds and the sun rising in the horizon. You don't always get to see that, so captured a few snapshots on my mobile.
And this scene made me completely forget all the aching and pain.
Isn't it a stunning sight?
