The pictures are from an outing to the ruins of a fort on the outskirts of our city.
Sadly, the experience wasn’t as exciting or even remotely close to how good the pictures make it look. After driving for over 50 kilometres on a dusty, dry, un-aesthetic and overcrowded highway, we reached this place much hyped about as a weekend get-away.
Well, you do feel like getting away.
From the place!!
Especially if you had harboured great expectations based on the hype on websites (what were they all thinking?!!) and are rudely greeted by a ill-maintained, ramshackle fort right in the middle of a crowded but insignificant town!
The clear blue skies, the rustic old countryside and the tiny little town actually looked more picturesque in our photographs than in reality.
The only saving grace was the lovely weather that day, which kind of made up for the rest of the disappointments.
We tried to make the best of the trip - climbed right up to the peaks of those huge rocks, raced down the stone-staircase ruins, chased a herd of goats and munched on the delicious picnic lunched Daddy had prepared.
And made some beautiful pictures.
Of course, the reason you don’t see Shadow in the pictures is because we had gone on this trip long before he came to live to us. Early October last year, to be exact.
We know he would love to climb those rocks, but we certainly aren’t ever going back to that disappointing place again. It isn’t worth all the time and energy you spend.
After all, there is a whole big, beautiful world out there, waiting to be explored…
