Sri Pada

This is Sri Pada in Sri Lanka.

In the lingua franca it is "the place where butterflies go to die".

It is the only proper mountain I have ever climbed.

As I recall, getting up it was a great deal harder and less pleasurable than coming down the other side.

On the day following my fiftieth birthday I am tempted by tortuous analogies.

For everyones sake, I intend to resist them.
