I made a lot of business trips to Mumbai (Bombay), India this year.
For some reason, all the international carriers leave Mumbai at 2 or 3 in the AM. We started referring to getting on the airplane as "getting back in the bubble". I had to leave the bubble (hotel) to get to the airport, then sit around for hours, exhausted, in the airport waiting to board. And Mumbai airport is like being on another planet. Goofy, crazy, smelly. Finally getting on the aircraft, I wou go ld just sit back and "Ahhhh...back in the bubble".
