Currently 3:11 PM. Delhi. A little over 2 hours until boarding the Haryana Roadways doubedecker “sleeper” bus to Baijnath — the closest busstop to Bir. Quebec Remy is coming with me, I managed to convince him to come, for the creative benefit of all dear little sentient beings. Due to lots of background noise inhibiting my ability to think clearly, I’ll transcribe the bus ticket:
