a place to showcase

Zen ~ 2

We emerged from the largest of the five caves to be greeted by a downpour.

It was a surreal setting to be in….torrential rain high up on a rock, surrounded by a green expanse bang in the centre of sacred Buddhist land.

We sat there, sheltered, yet soaking it all in. It was beautiful and the air was suddenly cool.

  1. Damn, that was a downpour, Mun.

    I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things. Sorry to have been away the past couple of weeks. We had guests from the US and then did some traveling around our new country. Didn’t always have internet.

    Happy New Year.

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    • Happy new year dear dear Kathy!! It is so good to hear from you after so long! Missed you ๐Ÿ™‚ But I’m absolutely sure you were busy having a wonderful time and that you have lots of bloggy ammo lined up! *grins*

      It truly was a sight, buckets of rain just pouring down like no tomorrow! I’m sure glad we paid to have our shoes kept in a dry place or going back downhill would have been an uncomfortably squishy experience! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • I’m glad the pictures convey the refreshingness ๐Ÿ™‚ Nothing quite like watching rain pour down from the heavens, is there?? Nature at its finest I tell you. I really could have stayed up there for a longer time….I hate leaving such places ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      Sigh. Back to the routine eh, H? I’m so glad you had a blast in Goa though. Methinks you need to catch up on your clicking in 2014 madam. You need to share Bangalore with us ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Rain when you are exploring exotic places is all part of the experience, isn’t it ? You just go with the flow. I suspect you could have watched it for hours from your dry vantage point, just chilling and soaking it all up, literally. Also, great pic of the 3 of you. That’s one for the wall. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh it was the highlight of the experience I’d say….rain in that landscape is so very spectacular! We only emerged from that place when the cloudburst wore itself out. Then down the rock, harrassed by a man trying to sell me cheap, overpriced necklaces….ended up buying something just to get him off my back!

      p.s I love the pic too! Yay for timers ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Oh how I’d love to play in that rain right now. It looks so refreshing and warm! Bet you were glad of storing your shoes. Love the last photo – you all look so peaceful ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I could feel the rain. You did a grand job of showing the beauty and wetness of it all. And that last picture is wonderful. Simply wonderful! (Am I using the word wonderful a lot lately?)

    • You can use the word ‘wonderful’ with impunity Kathy! I will certainly not object ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you, thank you, your comment gladdened my heart!
