The longest day ever: November 16

I think this may have literally been my longest day ever.  I left Delhi at 2 am and then through to Zurich and Toronto and then finally arrived in Saskatoon around 7:30 pm.  I then took a taxi to the hotel where I’d left my car and then drove back home.

Before my flight from Delhi to Zurich, there was an unaccompanied minor literally running around the boarding gate.  When I got on the plane, guess who I was seated beside.  He actually wasn’t as bad as I’d feared but he seemed a bit confused about when we were on the ground still versus actually flying.  My flight from Zurich to Toronto was great!  It was maybe 60% full; flights are always so much better when no one is seated beside  you and the flight attendants always seem happier too.  Upon reflection, this was my first fairly empty international flight in close to five years.  I realize that airlines don’t make a lot of money from flights like this but I sure enjoy them!

[You may have noticed that it took me a really long time to finish my India blog posts.  I won’t go into the details because most people really won’t want to read them but a few days after returning from India I began to feel not well at all.  Eventually, I found out the cause was cryptosporidium.  Other than maybe being slightly more tired than usual I’m feeling good now and it’s almost time for another vacation (though of the not quite so exciting variety- just headed to Ontario)!]
