I opened the French doors to my tiny balcony just slightly. The rain had finally stopped and I wanted to get some fresh air. I laid out my yoga mat on the hotel room floor, and began doing one of my favorite routines. As I lay there, knees to one side and head turned to the other, I felt as though someone were watching me. I slowly turned my head towards the French doors and was surprised to see quite a large peahen perched on the railing of my balcony, staring down at me. Very quietly, I stood up, picked up my phone, and snapped a picture through the crack in the two doors. The peahen simply continued to stare at me, then slowly turned and flew away.
