Staying alone is not new for me. Initially I was supposed to stay in a hotel, since the trip is for just 2 weeks. But I requested my company to arrange a flat for me, so that I can cook my own food. And they had arranged a wonderful 3 bedroom apartment, which I was supposed to share with 2 other colleagues.
But due to some change in plans, they will not be here in Sweden for the next 2 weeks. The apartment is extremely good, except for the fact that there is no telephone or internet. So once am outside office, am cut off. In a way that’s good 🙂
Yesterday evening I started a bit late from office, and by the time I reached the bus stop it was empty. And there was not a single soul on the road. It was hardly 17.15 and I was quite surprised.
Even more surprising was the fact that, the bus which I took was empty, except for the driver of course. Well I have never traveled in an empty bus and it was a different feeling. After sometime I went to the last seat and sat right in the middle, with both arms outstretched. Aah. I felt very special 😛 The journey lasted for about 30 minutes or so, but it was quite an experience.
And to my surprise again, I did not meet a single soul till I reached the apartment. One of those days eh? Guess in Bangalore I was staying alone, and here am living alone 😉 Life is good, I tell you.
