I’ll tell you what I saw.
I saw my neighbourhood, after goodness knows how long 🙂 🙂
After weeks of lockdown, which I obeyed by staying home, today I finally had a taste of freedom.
Since mid-April, I’ve walked up and down and up and down and up and down my driveway, doubling back every 50 metres, all the while trying to keep myself enthused.
By today, when lockdown was eased a little, I was SO ready to head out.
Of course, I hasten to add, I am VERY grateful for possessing a driveway to walk on.
(I just listened to a podcast about the benefits of starting a gratitude journal so yes, I repeat, I am super-grateful for the driveway.)
Right, now that I’ve got that out of the way 😛 I repeat I was SO ready to head out to pastures new.
Well, not exactly pastures new per se – just the local streets, because sadly my 2 favourite local parks are still closed – the Biodiversity Park & the District Park.
But after weeks of not seeing the mean streets of south Delhi, I trotted happily hither and thither, taking in the sights. I mainly walked, but there were a few occasional bursts of running, and it was all pretty fine.
Met loads of cows.
Met the adorable street dog who lives near the Biodiversity Park and who greeted me joyfully, as he always does, bless him.
Loads of walkers, the occasional runner, a few cyclists.
A few of the tiny pocket-handkerchief colony parks were, however, open so I went to see The Ugliest Municipal Statue Ever.
Here you go 🙂
Enjoy one spectacularly ugly thingamajig 🙂
It’s a cracker!
