I woke up this morning with a terrible toothache and headache. It's sunday and I leave for a business trip tomorrow early morning for 4 days! SOS. I call up my dentist and as expected he does not answer my phone! Panic! Pain! Tension! Five days with this horrible pain already sounded horrible!
Now, one thing I am little bit good at is PR. I somehow end up making good rapport with people I meet. Blabbermouth that I am, I can talk to anyone about any damn topic on this earth! Especially doctors. I have amazing rapport with all my as well as my family/friends' doctors and they are all fond of me (ah, the conceited me :P)!
After an hour of me calling up the dentist, he called me back. And he had my number stored. I was mildly surprised (only mildly; remember he is fond of me?) as he had my number stored. He prescribed me a few tablets which would give me a temporary relief while I was away and gave me an appointment of the next day of my return! Ah, bless him!
Back to my travel plans, I recently went on a five day trip to MP. Covered Bhopal, Bhojpur, Bhimbetka and Panchmarhi. Those on my friends' list have already seen the pictures. The trip was awesome. I visited many historical places, caves, temples, museum, lake and such things. The places are awesome and must visit for all. One suggestion: visit them during non-season. It will turn out really cheap!
I had Mauva there. It is just like taadi/neera after fermentation if you know what it is. Else, click here. I had it "bottoms up" as instructed by my guide; and man! it hits you hard. You feel so damn light unlike the heaviness of heavy drinking. One glass was as strong as 2 neat pegs. It takes you a few seconds to get used to the taste, but after that it just seems fine. It stinks though! Worse than a beer. But I love beer, thus didn't find it that bad! After a glass of Mauva (yes, only a glass as we had a lot of roaming around to be done) and a local bidi, the feeling was too good to waste by consuming the second glass!
Another "landmark incidence" of my MP trip - I did rock climbing and rappelling. Yes, that was super exciting, but what made it the most memorable was the fall! I fell down while rappelling :P And was laughing my lungs out hanging there. See the image and you too have a laugh:
Ah, the fella kept yelling and asking me to stand up, but where? I couldn't figure that out! And kept laughing. It was one hell of a scene and I enjoyed falling down n hanging at the place where you could not stand up! Ah, I miss the fall!
But I had a wonderful trip and if I get the time and mood, I will post the travelogue somewhere! Now, time to enjoy a business trip to a hill station!
