Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

October biking mileage

I biked 180 non-recreational kilometers during the month of October. These kilometers include my work commute as well as sundry errands around town. It feels good to get that much exercise without any extra effort - it's just built in to my day, whether I feel like it or not!
