Drunk like a Cat - Umrah Pilgrimage Part 8

Juzz a leetle beet more, my good man. Hic!

I don't know how long I can make it being this way. I am kinda indiferrent and calm at this moment, sprawled as I am on the floor of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. But if I allow myself a moment to think about what is about to happen (God Willing), this trip to Jerusalem, Medina and Mecca... and the planned visitations to the resting place of the Prophet and Prophets, Saints and Companions... well I get a little dizzy. I lose my balance between past and present. I lose my sobriety, I become intoxicated.

The wonderful thing about this kinda of intoxication is that I will have no regrets. I shan't be worried about my picture turning up on the internet looking like a darn fool.
Wait... Am I gonna regret this picture...!?

Perhaps I am lucky this way, I don't know. There is no hangover to suffer, no bills to be paid at the end of this Maqam Crawl, unlike a pub crawl.

I have to leave pretty soon. Tabung Haji (The National Pilgrimage Fund) are giving a pre-flight talk. I wish I can write more. Perhaps later.

Have a good day, sunshine. Tonight I am a traveler.

Pax Taufiqa.
