The little red hood

The last morning in Jodhpur, in the station, I was longing for the train that would bring me back to Delhi. Still having a bad headache from the food poison and an empty stomach, I wished this trip would end soon, and I could not wait to go home. In the crowded station, I suddenly saw a little red hood and her smile. I then remembered the reason why I decided to make this trip happen at all. I would never trade eleven days of safety and comfort for the moments I had collected along the way, those that came without any expectation, among those was simply seeing these sparkling eyes.
