Explain why you do not like this trip
Well, being a voracious traveller, I love to travel. Also, I am an architect by profession and which requires me to cruise to different locations for site visits and work purposes. Although I love undertaking site visits, I don’t like visiting this new site at CST in Mumbai. This place is around 50 km away from my home and office in Thane.
As I mentioned earlier, I am required to go there twice a week to supervise the construction of a residential tower. To top it all, I am compelled to travel by the insanely crowded local trains, where there is no space either to stand nor to sit. The scariest part is that I have to further take a cab ride of 20 minutes to reach the site of work and if at all there is traffic, then the commute can easily stretch to 3-4 hours.
I detest this journey as it is filled with pollution and highly inconvenient. It’s no secret that a metropolitan city like Mumbai is high on pollution. Moreover, travelling in the local train and cab for around 5 hours, to and fro, really takes a toll on my body and sucks out every ounce of energy that I have. However, as work is a priority for me, I still travel there twice a week with no complaint.
Here is the list of the latest cue cards which are released every four months.
