Blind Bicycling (Out of the Odd #4)


Yes, my friends are as hyper and excited about summer vacations as I. Thus, I have a lot planned everyday.
Yet today, I sit in peace.
I had a flight to Islamabad today, it got postponed to tomorrow so I had already cancelled all my plans for doing anything today. I'm living up to my aim of having a 'Phineas n Ferb' like summer vacation :D

So here we are, five shadows at midnight. I have friends at my place for a sleepover.
And as expected, nobody sleeps.
We go out for our midnight adventure.

The winds at night at Karachi ^_^
You got to be at Karachi to learn to love them.
The days are humid and warm, thus the Karachiites sleep then.
The nights are breezy, soothing and yeah well I ran outta words :p
Thus, it makes sense for The City Of Lights to be alive at night.
(I remember being made fun of when I mentioned how I go to sleep at around 10pm on school nights when I recently shifted to Karachi :p)

The cloudy sky and the crescent moon.
This is how the sky looked that night.
Only a bot darker :)

Back to the Midnight Adventure.
Mama n Baba are busy with their own work, us five friends take my brothers bicycle and out we go.
 If you haven't done it before, trust me riding a bike on an empty street with the wind slapping your face and closing your eyes like there's no better moment is an experience worth being risked.

By risk, I do not refer to five teenage girls out at midnight alone in Karachi. 
I mean, closing your eyes on a road which is seemingly empty but one can hit anything and be regretting that time for life.

Life's simple right ? :)
And it's about positivity too :D

If you haven't tried bicycling on a breezy cloudy midnight with your eyes closed.
You have to try it :)

Oh and I painted a polluted city the sea, with the help of my art teacher  this time :D
I'm working with watercolors these days :)

P.s. Don't mind the picture quality.
I need a good camera :D
Behold, the polluted city by the Sea :D

I hope the road you were cycling on was long and straight and empty. I think you'd enjoy flying in a glider if you ever get the chance.

@Gorilla Bananas. I'm waiting for the day I can go paragliding or parachuting :)

This does sound like quite a fine adventure. I did similar things in my teenage years, though I was in a small town. My adventures had more to do with walking in the wooded mountains at night.

Very nice artwork.

I have sent you an email concerning your guest post at Tossing It Out.
