Monk on the Dharamkot road, McLeod Ganj

Yesterday evening I returned to the Dharamkot road. Mist hung dense in the forest and lingered around the road; a few people laboured up the steep path or walked more briskly down. I took my time, enjoying the relative tranquility before rejoining the crowds at McLeod Ganj.

I also, as I discovered back in my room, had played host to a leech -- the first time I've donated blood since leaving New Zealand.

Love the monk and the green serenity. The leech? No.

EC, I'd have liked to photograph it, but by the time I discovered the bite, it had gone. Didn't even stay to say thanks for the feed.

Such beautiful colours, and such atmosphere.

Kia ora Pete,
Glad to see you can still find the mist. Kia Kaha e hoa.

RR, plenty of both here.

Kia ora Robb. No problems finding it here!
