No, silly, I’m not talking about the black and white animals you see at the zoo eating bamboo. I’m talking about “panda portraits,” photos you take of yourself while riding […]
Rain couldn’t keep me away from the famers’ market today. It didn’t daunt a lot of other people, either, and there was a nice assembly of people patronizing the White […]
Back on the bike, finally! Only for the shortest of rides, though. No matter. I still see cool things, even on the short route. Like this commute scene.
I had a great time hitting the Thursday evening Farmers Market by the White House. I was on foot, of course. Post-1000K walking, remember? Check out these awesome veggies.
