After six years without going in summer, I returned to the Town, where my parents and grandparents were born and grew up. Like everything, it has changed over time, but it continues to have that calm and tranquility in the day to day that undoubtedly makes it the best place to rest and disconnect. There are few ways to get there.
New story of the 15-day trip to Namibia that we made for free in August 2016. That day we visited one of the most wonderful and strange places we have been: Dead Vlei. We headed to the entrance gate of the Namib-Naukluft National Park and saw that there was already a line of about fourteen cars waiting for them to open.
& Iexcl; have finally arrived! No, we are not going to Japan, for that there are still two months left, today we are starting a week of vacation. The truth is that I personally need them because I have been a little old and we were not going to spend all summer working, right? And where they will go, you will be wondering.
The Koyasan (Mount Koya), is one of the three holiest mountains in Japan. From Kyoto it is not easy to get there, and after the experience, going to spend the day is complicated by the lack of time. In principle, if everything goes according to plan, it takes about two hours and 45 minutes to arrive. First you have to take the bullet train to Shin-Ôsaka, then take the circular train line to Nanba or Shin-Inamiya station and then take the train from the Nankai line (eye that Japan Rail Pass is not valid here) until Gokurakubashi station from where the funicular goes to the Koyasan.
Every day, when the first rays of the sun illuminated our window, the macaques that live on top of the fort descended to the town of Bundi to find food. The problem was that they went down so uncontrollably, that one ended up stamping against our window with great rumble while I took my morning shower, so that Sonia, from the bed, was thought to have slipped and killed me.
That morning was our last day in Shekhawati and our last day with Mahendra. At night we had not slept well because Sonia continued with a cough that sounded very bad, despite the syrup and the Strepsils that had been bought the day before. Despite everything, we wake up calmly and have breakfast.
