Smells of home…

The sky has been blue,

The weather sunny and the heat dry,

The trees have been pine, jacaranda bottlebrush and gum,

The smells have been eucalypt, honey suckle, pine and marijuana (it grows like a weed here 😉)

The last couple of days I have had a feeling of happiness whilst riding around the mountains of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir.

There has still been the usual disregard for our lives by anything bigger than us on the road, ridiculous distorted amplified horns blaring at us from every direction and diesel and petrol fumes blasting in our faces but aside from these Indian norms, it’s felt a bit like home… (We also happen to be about the same distance from the equator as Adelaide)

Not such a blue sky on this occasion!

Not such a blue sky on this occasion!

It’s either this that’s making me happy or the knowledge that we only have one day left on the road in India… Can’t wait 😉
