Rough Return

The last day of travel started a little rough.  Maybe it was the fried balls of sugar from the night before, but something gave me an itchy throat.  I did not know whether it would go away as the day passed or get worse.  Well, turns out it got worse.  What started as a small head cold ended up as a decompression nightmare.  Landing at Newark International Airport, my ears never popped on the decent.  Ninety percent of my hearing was “temporarily suspended” and my head felt like it had been used as a parking block for the airplane.

Arriving home at 4:30 am I was wide awake, mildly deaf, with a splitting headache. And who says traveling is no fun?  Anyway, I spent most of Monday convalescing, which is a polite way of saying I was miserable for about 24 hours.  When I woke up on Tuesday morning I was feeling much better in spite of the fact that it was only 1:00 AM.  It did give me a chance to sit down and start going through some of my images.  Here are a few images from the end of the trip in Haridwar.
