Day 108, Friday, 2nd March 2012

Today was our last morning in Jeddah. We, i.e. Dr. Narendra and I, had decided beforehand to leave early in the morning so as to arrive in Al Muweh well before the end of the day. Accordingly, we left the hotel room around 10:15 a.m., and directly proceeded to the SAPTCO bus stand. We were told that our return ticket was to Ta'if was for 12:30 p.m.! We were wondering what to do for nearly two hours, when a bus to Ta'if was announced. We asked the driver to accommodate us on this early bus, and he complied as seats were available. Hence, we sat in the bus by 10:30 a.m.  Unfortunately, the bus developed a glitch, and we were told to disembark and climb into another bus after a wait of over 45 minutes.   As a result, we started after 11:30 a.m., and reached Ta'if without further incident at a little before 3:30 p.m. I had pre-arranged to meet Dr. Asadullah here. He had obtained my insurance documents earlier last month, and I picked them up from him. It was at about four that we finally started from Ta'if in Dr. Narendra's car. We reached Al Muweh at a little after 5:30 p.m. 

In the evening, I rested, and sorted out my stuff, emptied my bags, washed my clothes and so on, The day got over in this manner.
