It feels ages since I've been here, on the page... I've missed my blog and all of the blogs I read regularly. The internet connection is tenuous and that's if we don't have a power cut which happens three times a day. My blog reader doesn't seem to load either so I feel quite cut off, I don't know what any of you lovely lot are up to. I am going to have to wait until I get home to catch up with all your blogginess and leave you random 'after the horse has bolted' comments.
India has me firmly in her arms.
I have settled in to a strange little routine and a very simple existence. I am loving my 6am yoga, it's really going nicely, I'm moving deeper with more stability than I have had for a long long time.
In turn, my thoughts are more stable and my outlook more sunny. I wash my clothes in a bucket and my shower/bath is a bucket and a jug...sometimes the water is warm,
I'm getting good at the shock of a cold drench.
Yoga is 6 days a week so after yoga on a Saturday morning, I don't have to report for school until Monday morning which gives me an opportunity to dash off on a mini break.
Like I need it? I know I know.
I had a couple of days away and went to stay in a river lodge to see some wild animals.
I was hoping for a glimpse of tiger but instead I saw the fuzzy horned fellow below. I also saw elephants, bison, wild boar, peacocks, monkeys and lots of pretty birds. Kingfishers are everywhere, spotted as a flash of iridescent blue and the sweet 'bee eater' as seen below.
Trundling through the forest/jungle as the sun came up was magical.
Thank you, I keep saying it,
I've got tons of things to tell you about India...zillions of images
and I'm hoping to be back here sooner rather than later.
Next time, I'm going to take you into the zany world of shopping in India.
The retail experience of a lifetime.
