A Believer’s Journeys on the Daily Commute

Like a lot of educated, working professionals who take pride in ‘open mindedness’ and ‘healthy scepticism’, once in a while, I too look up my horoscope and birth charts by various websites for justification of my faults and inspiration for future.

I once found a prediction which very much suited my dreams – the fate to be on the move all the time, to do extensive travelling. The chart even warned me to take up a job accordingly, if I didn’t want to end up wandering aimlessly all my life. I thought that the latter option was more charming, if only I were rich. Being an only child to very cautious parents, I had made very few journeys till my early twenties and so a trip to anywhere would give me extreme happiness, or so I thought.

A few years into my career now, I have realized how my wish and the prediction have come true over the years.

I seem to be the only one in my circle to commute daily over the most harrowing, long winded, traffic congested roads, always. It feels like I am in office only for a few seconds before I take off again on the return trip,

What To Take On A Safari To Uganda

Pack Practical Clothing
One of the most essential items when walking somewhere like the Murchison Falls National Park or in scrubland is a well -worn pair of walking boots. A top tip is to wear them on the outbound flight. If your luggage is delayed you can buy basics locally but not those comfy boots. Although you are heading to a hot climate take a rain jacket. The weather is unpredictable in jungle areas and downpours are common when gorilla tracking. Pack a mix of short and long sleeved shirts. At dusk the mosquitoes are at their busiest and avoiding bites is essential on an African safari. Malaria is a significant risk in Africa so do ensure you have your anti- malarial medication with you as well as insect repellent.

Take Good Camera Gear
If you are planning to go on safari Uganda is an excellent choice as you’ll encounter many different species of animal.

Adventures of Trekking to the Everest Base Camp in Nepal

Nepal is a wonderful country that has many aspects of diversity within itself. The most prominent one among the various aspects would be the topography, where the land structure is plain and smooth in the lowlands of terai, isolated valleys among rigged terrains in the hills and majestic mountains in the Himalayan region. Nepal is called the country of the Himalayas and has the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest located at the Khumbu region of the country. Along with Mount Everest, there are many other mountain peaks surrounding Everest as well. Trekking in the Everest Region of Nepal is perhaps one of the most famous trekking destinations for travelers all over the world. The Sagarmatha zone, named after the world’s tallest mountain, is abundant with Sherpa settlements, with Buddhist culture and religion being the majority.

The path to the Everest Base Camp is decorated mostly with colorful Buddhist prayer flags and carvings on the Mani-stone walls.

The Khumbu region also has Sagarmatha National Park; and while trekking to Everest Base Camp, you would

A Mixed Race In Lhasa

In Lhasa, I found myself flirting and making out with a Chinese and Indian mixed race from Hong Kong. Chinese in her features and really dark in her skin – as a tanned South Indian woman, – she was a visual artist and loved drawing and painting. She just separated from her French boyfriend and was upside down. We liked each other, we were good together, doing long walks in the streets of Lhasa, around the ‘Potala’, kissing, touching, and rubbing whenever possible, especially at night, in the darkness of a city completely devoid of light, but of the stars. She did not want to go any further, she was still in love with her former partner, who was also nearby, and liked to draw me in charcoal, portraying my face as her favorite art model.

I was not alone either. At that time, I had a relationship that for long did and did not work, seasoned with little joy and great incentives of suffering, since when, one summer evening, shortly after our second meeting, while rolling a cigarette in the quiet car park of a nearby village cemetery, she told me: “You are my last man”, just after telling

Perhaps, in the world, there is no civilized man, who has not heard about the “eighth wonder of the world (Pre-1900 Creation)” – the Great Wall of China.
