Addiction LXXVI

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I have suffered from that since my 20’s. Never actually fainted from it, but ai often have to bend over at the waist and grab a chair or other support. With the multiple BP medications now, it is almost unavoidable from time to time. My cardiologist says it is a good excuse to enjoy a little salt.

Its complicated. I really am not riding all that much. I hate letting it rot...so to speak. The steelie on the trainer and the Ti bike on the road will do me fine.

Just let me say this: there are risks. But if she goes to Columbia and it works out for her, it will be a permanent highlight of her life. My graduate school time at Princeton was life changing. I cant think of the place without giving thanks and wondering what I did to deserve the experience. There is nothing like the Ivy League.

That’s sounds more like a drop in blood pressure with standing and should produce lightheadedness, not vertigo, which is a distinct sensation of motion. Enjoy that salt! Those events are much to be avoided by people of a certain age with a history of high blood pressure.

I think we were talking vertigo, which is a spinning and/or imbalance sensation. This is NOT the same as a drop in blood pressure, which gives lightheadedness or a "brown out," taken to its extreme you would faint (which is different from a FALL that can happen with severe vertigo).

It's ok if you get these two confused, even physicians do sometimes.

Quick observation: Rode a shuttle bus from Budapest to Komarom, Slovakia and I have to say, the flat fields of corn stalks and winter wheat makes me feel that I never left Illinois. They even have the same crappy roads.

Illinois is a state of mind, I guess. ...or maybe it's Slovakia.

I found out, this morning, that Merida's temperature is up 4, from normal. I'm assuming this is F, as it was included in a talk to expat women. It went further to say that, with all that asphalt and concrete, out on a flat plain, it is acting as a heat chimney. Interesting.
