Posts should be back at normal rate soon. The hiatus was because of:

1. A ski trip (the last this season, since snow is disappearing). The good news is hiking season is almost here — and if the plans are anything to go by, this is going to be a good one.

2. A new hobby I’ve just begun – indoor rock climbing. It is not as adventurous as it sounds; it is roped climbing. But I hope to be more at ease when faced with class 3/4 rock climbing during hikes.

3. Work, which has the highest pleasure/strain ratio of all the listed activities.

And let’s not forget, I am growing older too.
