Sleep, interrupted

I don’t know what the problem is, but I’ve been bedeviled by horrible and vivid dreams for the last month. It’s like my REM cycle is being short-circuited and it’s reacting by going full-on technicolor madness in the early hours that leave me both restless and exhausted. It’s not a good combination.

Sleep whilst traveling is always tricky. Often you’re not sure where you’re going to be bedding down on any given night, and you’re definitely not sure of the conditions. I’m currently lucky to be house- and dog-sitting in Delhi. (It’s perhaps too comfortable; I’m not sure I really want to leave!)

I guess it’s off to the pharmacies for some pills, those delightful chemical wafers that can both reveal (eventually) and destroy consciousness. Sounds like they’re perfect for India.
