It has been a VERY long time since I strolled through the urban village outside our door.
Partly this was because for months I was traveling and hardly home in Mumbai. However it was largely as I simply wasn’t up to the obstacle course with my busted then fragile recovering ankle…
However I finally overcame the nervousness of potentially re-wrecking my ankle on the uneven winding paths and took a wander along the familiar twists and turns…
The parrots are inside and post Eid also means the goats are gone. The kitten has become a grandmother with her latest offspring’s offspring doing their own interpretation of a peak-a-boo while a snoozing potted cat was easily spotted.
Perhaps as it was the heat of the afternoon, however most of my feline friends were found standing (flopping) “on guard” at various doorways of their homes.
It feels good to be back exploring the urban village… even better I safely survived without twisting my silly ankle again! Related posts:
