“It is not that we have so little time but that we lose so much. ... The life we receive is not short but we make it so; we are not ill provided but use what we have wastefully.” ― Seneca, On the Shortness of Life (Photo: Nate Hill)

Camping on the Shimanto River

Wake up to the sound of serenity

豊 - Yutaka - Abundance. That is what you feel waking up on the Shimanto River. So much, in fact, you are overwhelmed and content at the same time, feeling that same small feeling you have when you stare at the stars -except for this time, it is not from imagining being on such a tiny planet, an invisible dot on the spread of infinity - no, the feeling on the Shimanto is from realizing that you are merely just one form of life, surrounded by so much diversity when you start to look closely.

I've been living in Kochi since 2006. I enjoy taking every chance I can to ride my bicycle, camp, swim in rivers, relax on the beach, and explore the surrounding mountains -- all of which can easily be done in Kochi. We're out of the way, but worth it.I'd love to connect with you on Twitter @Koch...
