Posting, 1, 2, 3...
I'm at my local Internet cafe, working on a computer that has surely been in use for close to a decade. Fortunately it appears to have been blessed in recent times as it still bears marks of sandalwood paste and kum-kum, so I shant fear crashes. A couple of weeks back there was a holiday where everyone performs puja (prayers) for the items they use everyday. The drivers really do up their buses and auto rikshaws with flower garlands and banana leaves-- it's quite a sight. Presumably someone took care of this computer as well.
More than a week back in Mysore, and I'm feeling quite settled. I've got a place to stay which is only a 5 minute walk from the yoga shala, and with the exception of an extremely tight right hamstring, my practice is going well.
My next move is to write a bit about what happened to me after the trek, my visit to Lumbini, how I ended up in Goa, and so on. Should get to that tomorrow. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy that photo of sheep. Any Murakami fans out there?
