My mother has decided she wants to go back to the Caribbean(for a 3rd time) in November and is having our travel agent arrange things. She said she “has to get away from here!”(how does she think *I* feel?) and it also likely has something to do with the fact that she just found out our cousins are going on another cruise in November as well(they go TWICE a year!) also to the Caribbean, so she has to “show” them “up”; that’s how she rolls.
In any case, I’ll be glad to be rid of her for 10 days as well and it’ll be like a holiday for ME,too with her gone! As well, the travel agent told me that Air India has seats that recline all the way back to lay down flat which is welcome news for me when I go next June as I can’t sleep sitting up, not just on a plane, but anywhere; I HAVE to lay down in order to sleep and a 15 HR flight sitting upright and not getting any sleep is not good and I will end up looking like a zombie when I stagger off,so tired I’ll be staggering and slurring(like I was when I arrived in London) not to mention the 3 1/2 HR drive FROM the airport to the ashram, and the 11 HR time difference! At least the good of it is it won’t matter waking up 3:30 am every day as with the long trip and the time change I’ll be jet-lagged and exhausted tired no matter WHEN I wake up or go to bed! It won’t make any difference!!
