Yippee, it's back to Calcutta today! Much as Delhi-Agra has been enjoyable, I'm missing my place, the cats, home cooked food, and everything in general.
Day is pretty uneventful. We drive to Gurgaon, where Guppy loses the bet that we spot any public transport vehicle. Now he owes us 1 grand. Methinks we won't get it anytime soon.
We drop by Gora's place. He's wearing a T-shirt that says 'Buffon!' I shall refrain from saying anything further. He explains that it's not Buffoon, as many people think, but Buffon is a football team.
Then it's to City Centre, a huge mall in Gurgaon. Ma drives everyone crazy with her window shopping. My shoulders are aching from carrying my bag around. I help Ma pick out a pair of shoes, and then it's time to drive to the airport.
The usual hugs and goodbye kisses. It's been fun. I'll miss Guppy. But it's going to be nice getting back to Calcutta.
Delhi Airport is horrible. Our own airport is so much better organised. They need to take a leaf out of our book.
I make friends with a girl from SXC 3rd year Mathematics on the plane. Turns out we know loads of common people The time goes by- chatting with her. There's a most uncouth man snoring at the back. All the passengers on the plane are miffed. Irritating.
And now the plane's landing.
I'm back home! :)
