Well I’m back home in Cochin and in my apartment after two days and a night away. I travelled by train to Trichy (Tamil Nadu) with 4 of my colleagues on Sunday night. We departed the station at 10:20 pm and reached Trichy 8 hours later. We left Trichy at 8:45 pm last night and I stepped into my apartment at 6:30 am today. Although I enjoyed my visit to Trichy and the Trichy office, it sure feels good to be back on my native soil.
The trip is worth a few blog posts and I’ll write all about it later today. But first things first – my dad was back home yesterday and he’s fine. After a whole bunch of tests and consultation, he’s just got an allergy problem and that is causing his respiratory troubles. He’s been given a bunch of medicines and told to take walks everyday. He also has to take an inhaler for his breathing issues but that is a temporary situation.
So my major worry is kinda solved and we can relax again. After 4 nights sleep on different beds – 2 nights on a train, one in a hospital bed and one on a hard bed in the company guest house in Trichy – I am looking forward to a good night’s sleep tonight. But the day is just starting and I have to get ready to go to work. So have a nice solar eclipse day and I’ll catch you on the flip side.
