We then had to walk what we had been told was am 8 to 10 minute walk to the office! Forget it! We arrived utterly deleted and vet unhappy campers about 40 montes later having clambered through the rubble, debris and unsavory sights and mess that is on the roadsides. It's a constant exercise in mindfulness I guess which is really energy sapping. I guess until we get accustomed to this it will continue to be so- so hard not to judge but rather to accept as the way it is - so these daily encounters are the spiritual path....I can only imagine how I will delight in our roads while seeing so much with new eyes. I guess roads in Masi could compete with this but our fortune is we can escape the roads in Masi! Also it seems to me the roads in Masi are less hazardous with children safely playing ball etc on them while that is out of the question here
It seems Saturday besides being a day. I am standing on the 6th floor lookiing out the window at washing hanging from everywhere on the roofs of the homes I am looking down on. There are a couple of children bathing in a tub and getting dresses, an old woman sitting in a shady spot on her patio. A feeling of peacefulness, roof top garden and hens growing, straggly tall trees searching for sunlight between buildings, shoots growing impossibly out of cracks in walls, debris on top if rooves and solar panels everywhere.
