Treadmill run and Chilika Lake in Odisha

Flamingos in Chilika Lake (I didn’t take this picture)

It remains cold outside. I meant to go for a run outside but ran out of daylight and ended up on the treadmill for a relatively easy 5-miles in just over 40 minutes. It’s been a while since I ran on the treadmill. It felt weird but comfortable.

My India plans are still being finalized. It looks like I’ll be visiting a few places in Odisha (formerly Orissa) for the first time. On the itinerary are Bhubaneshwar, Puri (Jagannath temple), Konark (Sun Temple) and Lake Chilika (bird sanctuary). I’ve read amazing things about all these destinations. Of course I am more interested in birds than I am in temples. Its shaping up to be a hectic and exciting trip!
