I Don't Want to Ride My Bicycle

After our descent from Mt. Marami, we went to a house nearby to wash up. It always feels great taking a bath after hours of trekking on a hot sunny day. After a quick bath, I took some time to rest, enjoy the feeling of being squeaky clean while checking out the neighborhood.

It was a quiet Sunday afternoon, and I noticed this little boy, the son of the owner of the house where we were washing up. Aljur seemed bored riding his bike, plus it was really hot outside, so he went under a shade, flipped his bike over and cranked its pedal which made the rear wheel spin.

As he was spinning the wheel fast, I found myself amazed and smiling as I remember myself doing the same thing as a child. But what amazed me the most was knowing that some kids still actually do this even in this age when games are mostly digital. Enjoyment, old-school style!
