But....it is still so nice. I walk 5.5km each morning, trying to get out there before the traffic starts, and the calm of the dawn is so peaceful. Sometimes, if I get up a little late, I go around the mini-forest roads and then the walking and jogging tracks on the inside, and that's a pleasure because I can listen to the beginning of birdsong.
I am happy that I am NOT adding to the pollution in the city streets.
Yesterday at about 7 pm, I walked back from JP Nagar 5th Phase via RangaShankara...and after a long time I smelt lovely champa (sampige) flowers on the air, as well as flowers like the Rangoon creeper and the Paarijaata. The cool winter air made brisk walking a thing of joy.
I love walking...I hope I am able to walk till the day I die.
