Noting that I have put on a little weight recently I have resumed jogging - always a better alternative to abstention from food. This is quite an experience in the humidity of the monsoon but the most notable impediment is how the locals, either on foot or on bicycle, manage to get in the way so clumsily. I wonder if this is a feature of some of the locals:
This morning I reflected on an earlier post in which I noted how the fuel crisis in the UK had led to less use of cars and speculated if Nepal (which has had similar price hikes) could enjoy some unexpected and much-needed environmental benefit. This came to mind as within the space of a few minutes three vehicles drove past me on my run, belching black smoke into the atmosphere. This could well be a consequence of the vehicles being driven using cheaper but adulterated fuel.
Sometimes you never win in Nepal and if my running spares me some obesity-related illness maybe I will fall victim to a chronic respiratory disorder in its place.
