A wallet with a unique embroidery called “Lokshikata” from an orphanage in Bangladesh, I turned it over and took out all the money I could find.
A few silver coins. That was all the money I had.
I handed it to the girl, who looked at me and held out her right palm to me.
She takes it and makes a gesture as if to ask for more.
Is that too little?
But the money I gave her was my entire fortune.
I turned my wallet upside down and not a coin more came out.
She understood what I meant and reluctantly left me.
The amount of money I have is completely zero YEN… No, it’s India, so zero Rupees.
Without Traveller’s Check
Of course, I don’t have a cash card.
Genuine “0 money”
Cape Komorin in India is located at the southernmost tip of India and is known as “Kanyakumari”, a sanctuary of Hinduism.
In fact, rather than the name “Cape Comorin”
The name “Kanyakumari” is more common in India. It’s not a cape on a precipitous cliff, but a sandy beach that gently leads to the surface of the sea …
“0m above sea level”
“From here…” he said, touching the surface of the water.
The air is hot, but the water is cold.
I get on my “Simple bicycle”, a bike given to me by Kit Bhutto in Thailand.
No fuel, only human power.
In the earth, the highest point , I knew it all before I ever learned it in primary schools.
The mountain. 8848m above sea level. Nothing, just aim there.
The journey has begun again.
