Searching for Jujubas

Exercises on trust

Step one: Ride sandwiched between a teenager and a tween on a re-modeled, hand painted motorcycle through unpaved very rocky, puddle filled, narrow streets at 70km/h with broken sandals and absolutely no helmet.

Step two: Stop thinking of the fragility of your thin skin against the uneven roads. Stop thinking of the possibility of skidding on wet patches, of the scars and unforgiving limp of your biker uncle, of the tender age and inexperience of your driver, of the lack of emergency services or hospitals in the area.

Step three: Close your eyes and feel the wind and dust hit your face. Enjoy the sour taste of jujuba in your mouth. Don’t hold on so tight, relax your muscles. Laugh. Trust.
