Day 2 of our bike trip from Goa to Nepal

ROYAL ENFIELD 500 CC TRIP THROUGH INDIA

ANOTHER DAY WAITING FOR A MECHANIC

March 3, 2016

We were leaving at 4.30am, only after 50m we noticed a strange noice coming from the bike. Another problem with the bike…  This time the close by petrol station was open and looking, with Indian people, where the problem was coming from we found a problem with the back wheel. Only the garage would be open at 8am! So we had to wait. We went back to the hotel for a little sleep.

At 8.30am Tilasmi heard the garage would be open at 10am… this is India! Taking this with a smile, I decided to look for the donkeys I saw yesterday walking in the streets jelly cialis. I found only a little one, she was not looking for physical contact. So I just looked at her behaviour and followed her. I felt like a little child that was curious and exploring the world. I felt very happy. Looking at a field I saw possibilities what to build there, like putting beautiful flowers and making a beautiful building. Walking back with feeling like a child I felt also getting mature and taking responsibility.

I walked through the streets in silence with a big smile on my face. In the mean while almost everybody was looking at me because I’m a foreigner. In stead of feeling suspiciousness to the people (what I had yesterday), I just felt totally save with myself.

Finally, after all these years of searching I’m feeling more and more alive and joyful with my whole being!

We left with the bike at 11.45am and instead of feeling nervous, I felt excited. This changed on the road in feeling nervous. Tilasmi is the driver and I sit on the back. Having trust and let the driver drive, instead of me, is not my strongest point. And what to do when you’re just sitting there? So I tried to give myself something to do. For example how simple indian people are transporting animals or other things, giving Tilasmi massage, how would I like to change the landscape, … 

Letting go of control

When we stopped for a drink we got pomegranates from the family and from another woman fresh raisins. What a hospitality! I felt better after this. Back on the road I got panic because Tilasmi drove with too much speed over the speed breakers (they are very nasty here), the bad roads and crazy traffic. After eating I felt good again. I’m trying to let go of control. Sitting on the back of the motorbike in India is a very good exercise…!
