A long day

I left my hotel in Mumbai (which is located on the west coast of India) at 3:45 Thursay morning for the airport to catch a flight to Visakhapatnam (located on India's east coast). 

Meetings all day there... and a 7:30 PM flight back to Mumbai.

I just walked back into my hotel in Mumbai... and it is 1:00 AM on Friday morning.

The crazy part is that at some point two weeks ago when I was planning out my itinerary, this seemed like a good idea.

it is always like this, looks great on paper, and then...
just make sure to remember how tired you felt when you got back, the next time you plan a trip like this one. we kind of seem to forget about it and make the same mistake again.
shabat shalom,

That's not the worst itinerary anyone's ever planned. Try nine days on the road from Ohio to Alaska ... with a cat.

Don't worry, Trep. Shabbat is coming! May it be restful.

I thought Visak was on the east coast near Chennai?

Noa... Good catch. Obviously I was exhausted when I typed that. Yes, Visakhapatnam is on the east coast.

Have a safe trip!
Yeah, it always looks good on paper. But the paper doesn't show the turbulance, the unworking in-flight entertainment (I was counting on "Monsters" to keep Ricki entertained"). Try a 12 hour flight followed by a 4 hour one with a child with ADHD and no ritalin. Helps one appreciate terra firma)
