Post # 141 UB bonus post

Day 172 559 days to go. Distance: today: 0 km total 8862 km. It’s 12.30pm Sunday 20/5/2012 UB Bonus Post. I started our last day in UB with a great Skype with the folks over a Sunday morning coffee. Nice!! With the last of the hand luggage sorted, I headed out for the afternoon and thought I’d share it with you. Nothing big just mooching in between the Gandan Khid Buddhist monastery and The State Department Store, finishing up at the Internet cafe to download the last of the photos. I’m taking the lonely planet walking route and have come out at a mall and cinema. What’s Rihanna doing in the flick ‘Battleship’ looking very Angelina’ what else is
On at the UB movies?Avengers, nup nothing interesting and western prices at $15. What is coming out soon is the next batman movie cool!!!! Holding my partners hand at the movies……. Numy!!!! It’s a beautiful day with folk out enjoying a Sunday much like elsewhere in the world I suspect, and it’s nice to be amongst it.

It’s 2.30pm and I’m sitting in one of the monastery open areas. The Gandan Khid Buddhist monastery is a walled centre of temples and shrines across 4 open squares. Each area has a series of prayer wheels and lots and lots of mating pigeons. People are enjoying the relaxed free space. I’ve walked the areas and spin the wheels. I had one little girl come up and say hello and want a photo with me and her friends. I have lit the incense
I bought back on the 10/5 and found myself humming a local tune watching it burn. Then I realized the tune was the Garbage Truck Man melody!!! He was doing the neighborhood when I left and I’ve been humming it since 🙂 Ill finish up on that very serene note. Thanks for sharing the afternoon with me. Talk soon x
