Yoga is appearing frequently in my entry titles...the sign of things to come? maybe I'll have got it out of my system by the time I return home..I fear not!
One of the distinctive things about travelling, well two of the distinctive things (Davey P, you were right that I would start pontificating at some point..) is that 1. You don't get an awful lot of privacy or time to yourself and 2. You don't really have a set routine......so bearing this in mind, fitting a yoga class into each and every day can sometimes be tricky..
Take yesterday for example...I was at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) for 12 hours (between flights from Guadalajara and to Auckland) and I was determined to fit in some yoga. So I took my mat outside and laid it out on the 2 feet of grass outside the Tom Bradley International Terminal where I partook of two hours of yoga in the sun...the mood was only slightly soured by the constant roar of traffic and the foul, heavily polluted smell of the air...I thought people would be impressed by my antics or at least faintly interested but it turns out that Californians really don't bat an eyelid at anything...all I got was one old janitor walking past me muttering....'ahhh taking some exercise...' and chuckling faintly to himself...
a case in point for having less of an ego methinks..
