Addiction LXXVIII

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

Any boat and to get there by sea, looks like youd have to go right past Somalia to Kenya, the worst waters in the world for piracy. What were you planning to do there? Sounds interesting.

I am SO relieved to hear our leader tell us that a scarf can be better than a mask. Gotta go find my balaclava.

I think it would be best if one wore an eye patch in order to fit in.

I have heard those guys patched one eye to keep it dark adapted. Hardass!

Went to old people hours at the local supermarket this morning. The bad: Crowded with little sense of distancing and because it was only one hour right at opening and everyone was hot to trot, we were part of a bolus of people moving through the store. The good: Mask density was about .75!

Sounds like you need a new bike to me.

Which shifter and what model?

It would have been something along the lines of 12 weeks working with local populations. I don't have any particulars on possible projects, unfortunately, as even applying (and I had a very good chance of being accepted) is a moot point now- considering it just came up on my Handshake site a couple of months ago. But here's a brief intro to the organization:

That's a 2004 model Cyrene, tastefully toned down from an earlier version that was hideous . . . looked like a tattooed arm sleeve.
