Sunday Trip^^ Walk For Health ;)

So glad I took the time to write this. I'm, unfortunately among the busy, busy, people. I do make an effort to unplug daily and be by myself. I live in an area without great internet service and often it aids in my much needed disconnect! I find time to watch football; take trip, watch crazy Indian serials, dance shows are my favorite, making music with my friends centers me and keeps me in touch with human reality, not the crazy world running in circles.
When I ask others how they are doing, I really want to know. In turn, I so deeply crave the time and space for heart filled conversations with others about how I am really feeling. I would love to hear how you make this happen :P ;)… Aarey bolona :D
Haha its okay not to speak now let me take my turn to tell you a story about my weekend trip with my students.
 I have photos of the day for you as a treat… Auuu Kinzz, so sorry I will portray myself jumping and sitting on my bed next time namo, I am  waiting for the hammer of inspiration to strike on my head to sketch  :P ;) no worries…I love to portray myself as cartoony girl …which I look cool, fashionable and young :P seriously!
Here goes my trip story:
Move For Health...
It was my plan to take my nature club members for field trip, as it was one of the actions included in my action plan. I have been busy for last week and I was little weak as well, I was lost in thoughts and craving every new day to give me another strength-hope, gradually invited the weekend.So, I scribbled the proposal letter to the administration and principal approved with full of appreciation. Thank you sir. I called all nature club members right after the Saturday class and announced them saying we are going for a trip tomorrow. They were excited and days-scholar was ready to bring food for all boarder students. I got a kick of bliss by seeing the excitement and contentment in them. Next day, we gathered on the school gate. I checked whether all the students were present or not and asked to call those missing friends.
tired but not exhausted :D
We started our journey, under the crescent rays of sun just youthful on the mountain top smiling at us. We threw back the smile to sun and kicked off our journey; exactly at 6:15 am. We had sever
al things to be carried, water, lunch box, dalda, incense stick...Alala! I had tug of game with students. They won and students carried my stack. No worries I carried my handbag full of junks. Oh that’s secret!  After an hour walk we reached Kingarabten(name of a place), the sun beam already streamed through window of that grocery shop and feed them the morning immature hug but  the shopkeeper was sleeping bongbong without any feelings.  We couldn’t lure them, we crawled to another shop and I could hear the snore from the punctured house :P. Finally a lady came out rubbing her eyes. Then we purchased juice, crunching-munching things form her shop and forwarded our journey.
Our destination
was downward.
Our destination was downward. ‘Down in the valley, the valley solo(shallow)’ I used to say solo, during my kinder-garden. Remembering this song, I wanted to sing aloud but I need to maintain the dignity of being teacher :p kidding and finally I made it!  I sang a song to myself; when I stepped downward. The valley wasn’t solo :p its obvious  narrow and with steep slope. But valley was a lovely place, though remote, idyllic place for those melancholic people :P, total silence, less people travel by, and away from the road. Isn't it a lovely place?
Finally after several footsteps, we saw a roof top of that lhakhang(temple).

We reached there, and there was a Kyenngyer(caretaker) and Lama(monk). I was totally tired but not exhausted, I wanted to throw my body on the couch if there was one, but I pretended not to show my tiredness. I greeted lama with widest smile and beautiful words “kuzuzangpola”, :P and I explained him why we were here. I asked lama 
to tell us about background of ChakarZur lhaknhag and he narrated a story about it…
Here it goes,
I too did social work ;)
It was prophesied by Guru Rinpochoe, one day, a wise man will come and build a temple here. So later Yab Tempai Nima (wise man) came and tried building temple for several times and at the end of each day demon dismantled it. So, Yab tempai Nima, used his super natural power and he used ChaagThaab(metal chain) to tie the sun and moon, so they had built that lhakhang in a day, by tying sun and moon, making the day longer.”

It is two storey old traditional building. The building seems very old and mild quake gonna bring huge devastation there. Down floor have the statue of Buddha as a main pearl. Upstir, the statue of Jutsuen Dema was displayed. We prostrated, offered few pennies and we received holy water and endless blessings from lam.
Then, we stepped down the ladder; and we did weeding, maintained flower garden, boys involved in grass cutting. Lama was pleased with all of us and I asked if I could take a kupar (photos) with you… We took group photos and we dispersed.
Photo session with lama:)
Then we visited waterfall. Sun had already reached her half life, onset to her maturity; I was so careless that I even didn’t carry umbrella or cap. Students sympathized me. I said its okay! When you all can walk under scorching sun why not me? We had tuff time breathing under sun; numerous bottle of mango juice counterbalanced the heat on me.  Exactly at 1:25 PM, we reached waterfall. She fed us with immeasurably blissful moment. I traced the smile on pale faces of students and rainbow on water fall made me to smile widest. Our smile and beauty of water fall made that place a heaven on the earth :P. Truly, I was lost in the forest of excitement. We shared our feelings with water fall and waved farewell to her, living her alone tearful and brought memory full of stunning scenery given by her as treat to all of us. Then, we came back to our home, with heart full of memory and visited Kingarabten palace. All students went up to visit temple, but I didn’t go as I needed some rest. After few minutes we had our lunch. Chillis are my great enemy! I had ama-datshi’s soup and that’s the referee to warm up the game inside my stomach, “Devil-Ulcer”. I couldn’t walk, so I landed up looking for a cab.

Love for doggy ;) a new friend, who joined us...
