Just when I thought the coast was clear, I got stuck in the rush hour traffic enroute home.
Two factors made it my longest drive ever. First, it was the detour. Instead of using the normal route, I made a loop behind my office to join back into the highway.
That ought to be fine if I did not make a second detour which was my ultimate mistake. It took me nearly 40-minutes to drive up 2.5km of traffic.
And when I saw a break, I made an illegal turn to get back into the highway. The rest was history.
In total, I spent about one and a-half hours trying to get home. Lucky for me, there was a warm meal waiting at home. Thanks to my lovely wife...
