Dew Drops on the Bus Window
We were not sure if we would be able to leave for the Jim Corbett National Park on the last Friday. There was a lot of fog and it makes no sense to leave in fog. But if we did not leave then the next day would have gone. So we left late at night from Gurgaon (this was a college trip but then I usually do not blog about work but I will give an abridged version anyway) and there was a dense fog. The Gurgaon Delhi Expressway Toll was so crowded even at 12.00 at night!
I was about to catch cold and feeling generally a bit tired. After a while I decided to take my avomine and go to sleep! The first time I woke up was at 4.00 am when we got down for tea. And then again it was just fog all around!
By breakfast time (don’t ask me when I was too sleepy to know) we had just reached Gajraula. In my avomine induced sleep I refused to wake up and get down for breakfast. I really have to thank my colleagues that they sent the breakfast for me in the bus. Because we made no stops after this!
Finally after 1.00 pm we reached our destination. The journey that should have taken us 6-7 hours took us around 12-13 hours. Yet all of us managed to reach safe and the weather at Corbett was uniformly bright and sunny.
