Today after one last yoga class I’ll slowly make my way to Amritsar.
I seriously considered staying here longer, but there are other places I really want to visit on this trip.
I realize that my initial report wasn’t glowing, but the town has really grown on me. The people here have been very friendly and helpful, the surrounding landscape is quite beautiful, and there is a spiritual vibe here that one can sense once one settles down long enough to notice. Staying here has helped me do that. Two yoga classes a day have helped this body become more flexible, and spending time just watching the Ganges river flow by has been great for the mind.
I’ve been told the best time to come is in the early spring, and I have to admit that coming back here for further yoga training at some point in the future sounds pretty appealing.
But for now I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
