Sunlit City Scribblings (Part 2)

Leaving the bunch hustled to get on the tricycle, I was plodding along as my head was turning a little dazzle. Breathing had become more difficulty and each puff had taken longer time. I wasn’t so sure whether it was the load I was humping or it was the impact of the altitude that start to get into me.
