So I thought it was just drizzling as I decided to walk over the bridge. Halfway across it starts raining heavily. I noticed a lost red shoe on the bikers lane and the sight made me snicker. Little did I know the joke was on me!
It started raining harder and harder, and I started slipping in my sandals with leather soles. All of a sudden, the sole of my left shoe was so drenched that it curled up. I almost fell on my face! The rest of the trip was dreadful, hard to walk with my broken shoe. With each pathetic step, I had to lift up my leg up and out, hard enough so that the flap flattened out before my foot hit the ground.

- Why do Buddhist monks and nuns wear a yellow robe?
- When the ancient Indians looked into the jungle they could always tell which leaves were about to drop from the tree, because they were either yellow, orange or brown. Consequently, in India, yellow became the colour of renunciation. Monks and nuns robes are yellow so they can act as a constant reminder of the importance of not clinging, of letting go, of giving up.
