What did you see on your run today?
I am back in one of my all-time favourite places in India, the beautiful Tirthan Valley, in Himachal Pradesh state.
I went for a slow trot along the valley this morning, feeling distinctly winded by the altitude, which isn’t that high, if the truth be told – just 1477 metres.
But whew! Felt very out of puff, so I ran super slowly, enjoying village life as it happened. Which is, of course, one of the many joys of running in India.
I saw cows and goats, and dogs a’plenty. 2 dogs lazily tried chasing me, but it was all very half-hearted.
I was greeted by villagers going about their village-y life.
I made a poor wee little boy cry. He saw me, was so shocked by what he saw, that he promptly fell over & burst into tears 😛
But most of all, I enjoyed village life at its peaceful best.
