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.

My own kite runner movie
Some kites are coming tantalizingly close to my rooftop perch, so I suspect my presence has been noticed. I hear a couple of kids shouting "hallo!" in my direction just now and done Rajasthani ladies one roof over are giving me shy curious glances. Just now, a pretty purple and green kite got snagged on the lantern finial near by, but I really wasn't sure of the protocol here. Do I reach out and capture it? Or release it and send it back to the kid on the other end of the string? A bit of kite cutting is going on, because I just saw a stringless kite flutter past. Here they are, sailing up towards the 1734 Nahargarh Fort. I guess I now realize what my favorite place in Jaipur is going to be for the 3 nights I'm staying here.
