Our return from India

My husband and I returned from our trip to India on March 8.  We were worn down by the rituals and receptions involved in an Indian/Bengali wedding - and we weren't the bride and groom!

We had a grueling trip home, which involved a two-hour train ride from the countryside to Kolkata (formerly Calcutta, one of the world's most populous cities), a one-hour cab ride through Kolkata traffic, and two transcontinental flights - to say nothing about layovers!  I took the travel all in stride, but became very sick and weak after I got home.  I would have taken sick leave last week, but getting work to a colleague in a timely manner kept me going.  I only began feeling better on Sunday.

Long distance travel is always hard on your system. Sorry you had it rough, hope you feel better soon
