Friday afternoon this week, called for an optional recovery session. All day I had been feeling cranky- after Tiger being catnapped, I awoke to the newborn kittens being MIA. Not a happy camper today. Anyway, I knew I needed to get out and do something to blow off some steam, and rather than head out for a jog, I decided to do the stairs at the temple down the road. I decided first time up will be an exploratory mission- take some pics and enjoy the experience. Next time, the stop watch will be on.
Ummm, this doesn’t look so bad….
Ooops, spoke too soon, the incline kicked up straight away.
I walked straight past these monkeys and didn’t realise it until I had already past them. Lucky! I doubt I would of had the courage to walk past them.
It’s getting steeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.
Not only steep, but very narrow. Had to place my foot sideways on this section.
The end is in sight, yippee!
Refreshments at the top.
Now for the trip down, which I was kind of dreading. Safety first!!!
Yep, it’s steep, hang on!
Once I was down safe and sound, my legs had that weird sort of ‘shakey’ feeling.
Here’s a monk heading up, barefoot. I wonder if he does it everyday? This sounds like a CHALLENGE.
One of the locals, hanging around.
How lucky are we to have this right at our doorstep?
