“When you spend most of your time filthy with road dust and sleeping outside or on floors, you fully realize the luxury of seemingly basic things –such as ice, washing machines, and beds.
Apparently they used to ship ice from lakes in North America across the globe to refresh the beverages of the wealthy in India! Ice, especially with some carbonated water and lime, has become quite a treat for me these days.
Hand-washing clothing is not a problem when you can do a little each day, it is just when you haven’t had the ability and it accumulates that it becomes burdensome. I’ve scaled walls ninja-style to launder a load.
And beds, well beds are just utterly fantastic.
Consider this your humble reminder to appreciate these comforts and conveniences if you have them. ”
