The photos are particularly welcome when there is still lots of snow covering much of the ground I can see from my self-isolation at home. I think I will share a link with a friend or two who might enjoy the "lift".

thanks so much @victorskid. Glad you enjoyed it, and hope your friends do too. No snow here, but rain today. Still, it makes no difference I'm not allowed outside anyway :( - another week to go. I admit I was still walking the forest trail close to home and keeping distance for the first few days we were back, but now it's mandatory to stay indoors so I'm doing the right thing. I just walked with weights around the apartment :lol: Not the same as fresh air but at least moving.

Great pics Alilou. I have never been to Rishikesh, though I have heard the name.

Thanks so much @Vash01. Rishikesh is wonderful. It's one of the three Ganges Holy towns, along with Haridwar and Varanasi. Total I've spent 2 months in Rishikesh, one day in Haridwar, and one week in Varanasi. Although I do love Rishikesh I think I have to say Varanasi is my favourite.

Beautiful photos! We're still allowed outside, so I've been bike riding- easy to keep away from people on the bike. Spring is starting here, but the botanical garden is closed, although the parks are still open.

Thanks so much @kedrin. Oh I do envy you being able to go outside :( I will be allowed outside in a week. Others are allowed outside here as long as they keep the 6ft distance. I only have to stay in because I just got back from Malaysia and 2 weeks indoors is mandatory. I miss my daily hike :( But I understand how important it is that we all do the right thing.

Yes- it's hard staying inside, especially as the weather turns nicer. I've been mostly inside for about two and a half weeks, only out for grocery shopping and bike rides. Fortunately, we were told we could work form home if we wanted even before the mandatory orders.

New blog post - about a beautiful fishing village in Japan - unlike anything else anywhere, and in true traditional Japanese style.

Kyoto By The Sea: Amanohashidate and Ine
.
Yesterday I finally got outside and went for a hike - it felt so good. :cheer: People here are really good about keeping distance.

Yes, we are doing very well here in Vancouver. There were lots of people out jogging and biking a few days ago, keeping their distance. I saw two friends in the past few weeks, but don't even think I'd do that now, unless keeping the appropriate distance, as has been advised. Now is not the time to buck authority.

I just saw a video of Japan - sidewalks crammed with people. I just don't get it. People are risking their lives and the lives of others needlessly. I fear Japan is going to have a crisis on par with New York's crisis. And Sweden isn't practicing distancing either, also some states still SFAIK.

I sort of get the 'herd immunity' theory, but what is the cost of that in terms of human lives?

EDA: I just read that Japan is going to implementing or recommending some measures in the next few days.

I know- that green! I also related to what you were saying about a place taking on mythic dimensions- Lake Baikal was like that for me. I'm so glad I got to see it before the world shut down. I hope to get back once things open up.

Oh I'd love to get to lake Baikal. Heck, I'd love to get to any part of Russia. It's on the list!
