Umrah Diaries | Two Days To Go

11 January 2020


Saturday is here.

I sleep only on Saturday, but I was too anxious to sleep. I am packing my bags and readying to go home. No matter how many times I travel, the 16 hours train journey always scares me. Have you ever felt scared of the fellow passengers? Like if they are too loud, too lecherous, too obnoxious?

I don’t know why these things bother me, but they do, immensely.

My posts will be far and few, starting tomorrow.
