Hello Delhi!

So..what to start with?!
We arrived late at night, grabbed a taxi to Nata's home (hectically driven by a half-asleep driver), argued a bit about the price that he brought up at the very end (obviously). We passed by two cows next to the road-barricade, kicking back calmly. Charming. Unfortunarelly, when getting out of the taxi, J.frantically picked up his backpack with a tablet inside, so its screen happily cracked.. Anyways, we got there in one piece, thank god.  

Day 1. The next day we woke up hellishly late but still enjoyed a day to go to the local market (rickshaw^^), exchange some cash, eat some (spiciest ever) pumpkin soup in a rather "european-style" place and go for a birthday party on the roof, somewhere in the Delhi's "posh' area ;) An amazing mix of ppl from all over the world, almost. Interesting from this point of view, and quite tiring considering the music and ambient around, but hey..;) J.was recognized twice by some random guys. Some greeted him gleefully without reason as well, which means there's loads of fame awaiting him apparently! :D

Day 2. We woke up, again, v. late, but managed to go out for a stroll and see amazing surroundings of the borough we're staying in. People preying on the street in small chapels by the road or in the park, two guys laughing out loud as a gym-therapy activity (leaning downwards with the arms up n down a few times in a row, bursting into loud laughter). Astonishing! Then the night fell and we headed back home, spotting another god's celebration (more festive, this time) in the local market (with the incense and bunch of bells). No rickshaws today, but tomorrow there's gonna be another day - probably with a primal need of taking it again, hopefully with a success and no victims indeed. 

PS. I've been invited for one-evening job tomorrow. Playing drums? Hell yeah! Any time. Haha. A review will appear shortly :)

Fingers crossed, we're going to view some bikes tomorrow too (hopefully)!

The Basque Country - the coast.

It eventually happened. We set off on the 8th, Saturday, very early in the morning - around 4 am, to get on the ferry in Newhaven's port at 9am. From there we go straight to Dieppe in France.
First day went pretty smooth although we found out that highways in France are horrendously expensive, even for the motorbikes. We got near Le Mans, known for its car races: 

First night and tent's set up:



Sunday (9/07) morning we met an English girl with her friend and a dog, called Aritz, who was heading the same direction as us so, luckily, he agreed to take the backpack I was having on me to her van. We worked out the place of our destination to pick it up and spend the night and set off for...the worst day until the very end of our journey (the latter I'll keep it secret for now). We could check off everything worst that could have happened, almost, except from having an accident. Luckily after all. We were soaked wet after heavy rains somewhere in the central France, we lost the…

My Vipassana experience - 2nd time.

Brain enema. Mind decluttering. Brain detox. These and more elaborate are the definitions given by teachers of Vipassana meditation technique I decided to give myself in again, for the 2nd time.




10 days in complete silence, without or at least with a very limited human contact of any kind, with absolutely nothing to distract from looking inward: no reading or writing, no physical exercise - except from one > sitting 10-11hs a day and meditating. I took up the challenge again.

Vipassana is a meditation technique, which is not simply about gathering up your mind, focusing and concentrating it. It is so much more! The principles are non-sectarian and not associated with any philosophy, therefore - utterly universal. What one is focusing on - for some for the first time in their lifes - is the reality, the present moment, as it is. As it is, not as one wants it to be. Purifying one’s mind by constant and very scrupulous observation of the breath and sensations in the body, arising and pa…

Happy travels - Exmoor's coast!

For a long weekend, here: 27-29.05, we went to the Exmoor National Park, in north Devon:





On the way, we gave a lift to the friend's family to the Bristol airport and carried on towards the seaside. After in 2/3s of the way we gave up and took a 'quick' 3 hours nap, for it was 6am :D 
Breakfast on the hill's slope:




First place visited - Woody Bay (right past the Lee Abbey Devon):



(Yeah, I learned how to embed a map directly, woohoo ;) )
Right, so we just spent an afternoon there, as it started raining at some point. Although it was a rocky-beach, rather shallow waters for quite a distance from the shore, still v. pleasant and, most importantly for us at the time, dog-friendly :)









In search for the place to settle overnight we found this beach, at Hele Bay, where we decided to stay on a view point with car park and in the morning went for a nice walk on and around the hill on which there's one of the earliest country leisure trails in England:





From the nature trail…
