We’re back from travels and almost recovered from jet lag, or whatever ails one after an extended trip. People vacation for rest and relaxation but sometimes return feeling astonished, weary and desperately in need of rest and relaxation.
We logged 40,000 km on 15 flights over 29 days. Not bad for an aging body (me) who spent a few years as a white knuckle flyer, worrying continuously about bumps, creaks and unidentified noises. Actually, that state of airborne apprehension was not entirely irrational, given a few experiences I don’t want to repeat.
Most of the time away we spent in India, with visits to Delhi and the states of Rajasthan, Tamil Nadhu, Kerala and Karnataka. For a change of pace, and a weighty whack to the wallet, we also spent 5 days in New York City. Soon, I’ll be writing on other pages about the trip.
At home, there are so many subjects appealing to a political blogger. I feel like a hungry and impoverished diner with a free ticket to the world’s largest buffet. Indeed, the entire crew of the BC Liberal Party continues working to ensure all adversaries, new and old, enjoy a surfeit of opportunity to pile on this astoundingly corrupt and incompetent provincial government.
