Oh yes sir yee

Singapore, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, now Portland, soon Chicago, New York, Washington, Boston, San Francisco, then all across Greece and Italy before heading to Denmark and Sweden. I should be exhausted already, or at least by the thought of what lay ahead. But truly my cup cakes, I am meeting so many insanely nice people (all cyclists naturally, and many architects too) that my smile is too broad for little things like a day of missed and delayed flights yesterday to bother me in the slightest. Yes, trolls are trying to fleece me at every bridge, but that's the way travel goes. No, I should not have brought camping gear to lug around on my Brompton. But another city lay outside my hotel window waiting to be explored, with expert guides. I would gladly swap eternity singing crap hymns of praise to Jesus and those, for the heaven right here and now. Hope you're all similarly "up" today too! Here are my latest quick clips—as you would appreciate, I have less time right now to treat you with prose.
Also, a big happy birthday to the wonderful Quinby, who turns 12 today. Son, you're a huge inspiration.
