With mixed emotions I got on a taxi going to the Suvarnabhumi (read as: Suwanapoom) International Airport way earlier than my scheduled flight at 5:45 in the afternoon. All I could think of was that few hours from then I would be seeing familiar sights and would be hearing familiar language.
When it was time to board, I could hardly contain myself and the moment the plane flew I was overjoyed. As I was seated at the window seat, I had the best view of the sunset that was about to unfold. I tried to capture every hue of the sky that changed minute by minute. It was magical. It was beautiful and a very rare experience indeed to feel like I was closer to heaven as I thought.
