I definitely feel better about the whole altitude thing today. It is still challenging to walk far, or bend over, or move too fast. Don’t Rush. That’s the principal rule to be obeyed.
Under these constraints, today’s taichi can’t be said to be an exemplar of the form. Done. That’s pretty much all that can be said of it. It got done.
There are peculiar aches and pains that manifest at this altitude. Lower back pain, weird mouth dryness, shoulder aches, restlessness, sleeplessness. We’re having a good time, my father and I, but the height and the dryness are both unusual travel experiences for us.
