Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

The Uruk Special Show at the Pergammon
Coming from Seattle I really liked these guys wearing fish costumes, and waving a brush with the right hand and carrying a purse in the left. Some sort of religious rite involving water, taken from the side of a stone water cistern. Never seen anything quite like it but the local coastal native people, from Alaska on down the West Coast would likely find this very familiar.
I bought a 3 day All Berlin museum pass for 24,00 Euro, so I might go back to the Pergamon for a 2nd look.
The Germans in the C19th were particularly active in the Fertile Crescent.
