My assigned practice time is 6am, which means most days I’m here will start pretty early, before sunrise. The queue was pretty long when I arrived yesterday, and I waited over an hour before I could actually get in to practice. Today, the line was much shorter (it started on the bottom flight of stairs) and the wait, less. I won’t lie - the long wait is a drag. Also, it’s chilly. It was around 55 degrees Fahrenheit this morning.
It’s funny the things I’ll tolerate here that I wouldn’t at home.
After practice, breakfast and more importantly, coffee. (I feel like once I have my coffee and bottled water sources worked out and well known, I can get on with the business of exploring.)
I’m pretty sure the best part about being on vacation is eating out for breakfast everyday. Cafe Santosha, is where I landed today. It was full of foreign yoga students (I get the feeling I’ll end up enjoying those types of places most).
I’m staying at the Anokhi Garden Cafe and Guesthouse, and the gardens are really lovely.
Speaking of cows…
The jet lag is real, yo. I’ve never traveled across so many time differences and wasn’t sure what to expect when I did. Yesterday and today I felt great until around 3pm. I thought a short nap would take the edge off, but both days I ended up sleeping hard until nearly 7pm. Nap champ!
