Ta - bi - run 2,

   The second morning, as the course scheduled to start early I left the hotel a bit earlier.  It was dark outside and not even dawn yet.

A beautiful morning of the beautiful city, San Francisco.

TA-BI-RUN in San Francisco

To overcome jetlag...

eat every meal on schedule adjusted for local time.
sleep at night in local time.
be exposed to light and sunshine during daytime in local time.
exercise during daytime to be exhausted at night.

I dare not to sleep during the flight to San Francisco and ate meal on adjusted time.  I went to bed around 10 pm last night.

This is Day 2 in San Francisco and I woke up at 5:30.  After enjoying Skype talk with my wife and elder son, I went out for run and sunshine.  It was 12.5km run took more than 90minutes.  I admit it was a very slow run.  It was not only for exercise but also for sightseeing.  San Francisco is the city travelers enjoy jogging and cycling.  I didn't rent a car during this trip and I think I made a right choice.

I left my hotel at about 630 am which is about the time of sunrise in san Francisco.
Starbucks is open already.

electric motor vehicle called 'MUNI'

 There are some people swimming in the sea, enjoying open water swimming.  It is too cold for me...


And came back to my room.  Another beautiful day in San Francisco.

Moldova! The fortieth flag on my blog.

The fortieth flag was.....Moldova

It's a shame that I don't know much about Moldova, neighbouring Romania and Ukraine.

Thank you for visiting here, and Thank you for visiting JAPAN!  And please come to see once in a while.

   I understood riding road bikes is really fun.  The reason I bought was simply because of its brand name.  In fact, it was a really great bike and make me ride it everyday.

   But I have to confess that I haven't cycle with my Brompton for the last 1 month.  There is no way for Brompton to compete against road bikes just for cycling certain distances.

   I am thinking of going somewhere out of town with my Brompton ... must be nice
