Today was, by far, the most mentally satisfying day of our trip. Today was like “peaceful relaxation meets complete presence of mind”. We took a drive down the tea estate roads, climbed down a valley, and later we went and climbed up a really serene waterfall.
Talk about a retreat from city life.
Later, we visited a monastery and I spun that praying wheel, wishing for all that my mind could think of. We returned to our hotel later and I went and bought a purse from Miniso 🙂
I think the best part of the day was the evening shopping, when I bought three books! I mean, did you think I could leave this place without buying books?
I chatted up with almost all the shopkeepers we encountered, and I realised, for the first time, what it feels like for kindness to be reciprocated by complete strangers. Love and respect for everyone, I understood tonight, goes really long ways.
