For the better, I have now settled down in my little room in Vancouver. After 3 days of dilly dallying and eating eggs, I finally picked up my lazy self and bought some groceries. Actually Salti drove me around in his newly acquired Ford F150 truck. That's how I managed to get the groceries, despite the rain. And dinner was a lovely gajar-matar subji (carrot+peas) with chapattis. So much better than eggs.
This is the first time I'm struggling with jet lag. The last 3 nights were sleepless, and not from the jet lag alone. I went to sleep this morning at 6am and woke up at 10am. It's now midnight, and I'm finally feeling sleepy. I'm so happy. Tomorrow is Monday, and I'll be headed to school.
The weather has not cleared up yet. I haven't seen the sun through the overcast sky and the thick gray cloud cover in the last 3 days. It has been drizzling continuously. It's dull and it's gloomy. Those of you who know Canadian winter or those who know what it's like to not see the sun for days at a stretch would know what I'm feeling.
