Heathrow Airport, on my way back to Delhi.

Rethinking to the past few days in DC: these have been hectic and tiring, but also - in a way - exciting and refreshing.

It was nice to be back and walk on those streets that I used to cover every day until a couple of months ago - and, looking around, trying to discover whether everything has remained as I left it, or if anything has changed. And it was nice to see again most of my friends and former colleagues, and somehow feel as if I had never left.

10,000 miles and twice 10.5 hour time difference in four days, but I left DC happy and re-energized. To use an oxymoron: it has been a ‘refreshing drudgery’…
