I'm going back and forth about whether to extend my trip another 4 days or not. I'm loving my time here, and the treatments are working so well I feel newer every day!
Staying would require a new plane ticket, and a return to Chengdu late on Sunday night, making me really tired Monday after a 12 hour trip and multiple airline connections. But I would enjoy an additional 3 days of pancha karma and 4 more days in Rishikesh.
On the other hand, the plane trip Weds. is only 10 hours, and I would have time to catch up on some miscellany, prep for the week, get my yoga practice in order, buy a bike so I can bike to school, and put more time into the job hunt. I just dread going back to work, not so much Chengdu, but definitely work. Dr. Raj asked me if I wanted to stay another week, and I said "I wish!" If I could stay here for 3-4 weeks doing pancha karma, yoga, and eating the healthy Ayurvedic food, I really would be completely new and rejuvenated! And I might be able to return to work less bothered by it (although I am definitely still leaving the Black Hole!)
I guess I'll go back at the appointed time, dangit. I leave on Weds. Jan 13, very early in the morning, which means I still have 12 more days of healthy goodness coming my way!
