Reached the Chennai Airport at 2h30 am and waited for more than 3 hours to get in the plane. I still don't understand why you should be at the airport at least 3 hours before your flight!??!
And the worst is when you have no more local money on you??! Or maybe when the police guys don't understand a word of what you are saying in English and talking to you in their poetic language to which you can just smile broadly and follow the hand gestures, which fortunately you understand. Pffft. And these Police craps don't hesitate at all!?! Thay made me remove my jacket and my shirt in such a crowded place...hey, well, the gals were impressed...that what counts, hehe, though I have well lost at least 5 kgs. But a little more they'd made me remove my pants too - there were metals fittings on them - thank god someone invented those handheld metal detector and, huh well, hands.
Why hands?? Well instead of making you remove your pants those police guys would "caress" every corner of your body. Yeah EVERY part! Well that's better than having to remove the pants in a crowded place like that, isn't it?
Well, the kinda thing happened in the last minutes of our waiting! Dad didn't sleep for 2 days just to check on me for the night. Damn ill I was. And so while resting his head on the sofa there, he fell asleep and we were on the 2nd row. Pfff....and there it went. He had to snore. Well not snore as snore but as S N O R E. What do you, as a son, do when everyone looks for "who's THAT?" Huh?! Naah sincerely I dunno this guy!! Stop staring at me..I dunno him, ok?
Oh my?!! Not that we didn't seek advice from an ENT...they all say its normal, purely normal. But I didn't sleep for 2 weeks too. Just for the 2 - 3 days he stayed up for me. Aaaw, he's so sweet my Daddy.
And now as usual I got my seat by the "wings" just like on the 3 other flights. AAARG. Ruins all the fun. You don't see a thing of what's going on down there. And worst was that this time I was just where the Wings join the body of the aircraft, that is just 2 seats behind the emergency exit via the wing. And that part is painted in white and you are to keep your window shut if you don't wanna get the reflected light right in your eyes. And now if you just treated your eyes, that's another problem. Woah, even the return way was fun, see? But everything seems so peaceful when you are up there flying...
Home feels dull!! I was very keen to get back but dunno why everything is so dreary! Aaaah. Doesn't feel like anything...there is no happiness at all. How long is it gonna continue like this??
Hell, but do I have a right to enjoy life or not???
