FINALLY RELAXING IN MY HOME FOR THE NEXT THREE MONTHS
After a hectic couple of days after arriving, I can now relax into this wonderful place which will be my home for the next few months
The weather is much hotter than seasonally expected, keeping me from my walks the past couple of days, and since I choose my room to suit me during the cooler, and even colder weeks, a room with plenty of sun and warmth, it is quite difficult right now. And since there is no AC anywhere to speak of, I continue to seek out the coolest places to sit, and be, during various times of the day.
I am now in this lovely haven downstairs, at almost 5 PM, enjoying the cool shady quiet…writing these posts
PERFECT PLACE FOR WRITING
My room is fine once the sun goes down and sleeping is even cool with the mountain breeze, but during the day, it is difficult to really enjoy being there….this should all pass in a week or so
I’ve just been flowing with things as they go…the second day I actually DID go down for a walk, thinking it would be OK, but after making it down to Laxman Jhula, after resting for awhile at the German Bakery,
SIGN IN THE BATHROOM AT GERMAN BAKERY LAXMAN JHULA
I had to return home and getting back up to Swiss Cottage was not easy. So I’ve sworn off walking around during the day. Will try tomorrow at 6 AM…
COLORS CROSSING THE GANGA
First day out , I just went to see some friends and do my shopping with free delivery of basic things I needed in my room….
Second day, I decided, during the walk I thought to take, to buy something to wear to a couple of weddings I have coming up….and that was the best part of the day as the clothing shop, Fab India, was air conditioned. More expensive than I usually buy, as I usually go down to the market, buy fabric and then have it stitched by a tailor… but worth the price just to be able to easily try on clothing in the coolness of the shop.
I’ve been eating well…what a joy to be able to eat whatever I want whenever I want, without having to prepare it myself,….
…had three massages which were wonderful, met some lovely people, and of course have been spending time with dear friends….
Looking forward to the more reasonable weather, but using this time as “enforced” rest time….probably what I need at the moment anyway.
Hope to have much more interesting photos once I can walk around more….and of course much more interesting things to write about.
I am loving the “boring” time at the moment….just what the doctor ordered for me….
Be back soon
With love light and JOY
