One of my resolutions for this year is to do things as differently as I can . I thought I’d try different walks on different days of the week. Though staying with the route you go everyday is the easiest. But mind numbing.
Monday : The Gorishola road. Past the lovely reservoir, the Durgha, the Sinclairs Hotel and the Tea Factory. The road becomes so bad past the Hotel. A favorite walk of mine until the road got so broken up in recent rain.
Tuesday. Up the road to tiger Hill Reservoir, past all those holiday bungalows till the road peters out to the forest.. no I didn’t go there…not alone.
Wednesday: Raining cats and dogs
Thursday : In town so decided to go for a few circles around the Botanical garden. Looking at the festive crowds and the green lawns, I thought I should do this more often. The best part is not buying a ticket to go in. I can say “‘Local-Walk” and they let me in.
Friday: The road leading down to town. Ah the familiar comfort of my usual walk. Went a little longer and came back and had a nice nap.
Saturday : Repeated the same walk. The town gets too crowded on weekends to go anywhere pleasurable.
