Cold Weather biking ( again )

Arguably it was not that cold today but I still broke down and decided to invest in a UA ColdGear hood quarter way through the ride. Fortunately for me there is a Sports Authority on 53 & 3rd. The face mask is a bit doofy looking but it keep the head warm, allows for breathing in cold air via the face mask, and it probably very useful for holding up liquor stores.

A+ would do business again

Trip to Cambodia Honorable Mention

Good job South East Asia on having universal electrical sockets. I didn't need to figure out adaptors between all the countries I visited. This used to be a huge pain in the ass. This time it wasn't. #FTW

Cambodia Trip memories

  • Flooding in Thailand - nobody seems to care. People sitting around in very flooded stores, chilling on raised furniture.
  • Getting fooled by the tuktuk drivers and not seeing the grand palace
  • The beach on the islands of sihanoukville
  • Watching the sunrise at Ankor Wat
  • Siem Reap Ankor What? Cafe. Sickest air band performance of Sweet Child of Mine. I played an excellent Slash
  • Siem Reap - biking around town before getting on the bus. Breezing through town, navigating around and generally feeling like a local. I even bought an H1N1 themed bag
  • Killing Fields - guide sharing his story of forgiveness
  • Sanderzone
  • Riding scooter to the top of mountain, hanging at the observation point and riding back down.The driver taught me how to holler at women in Vietamese
  • Seeing water world - city of Chau Don in the Mekong Delta ( Vietnam ). We took a boat ride to see floating village, much like the Kevin Constner movie.
  • Petting an elephant. Feeding it bananas.

Hello from Cambodia

The weather is wonderful and the flooding is minimal. Everything is super cheap. Spending 2 days at the beach is a great idea.
