Vegiie and fruit vendor heads to work These are some fierce winds that blow down out of Mongolia towards Beijing all summer long, there is a name for them but at the moment, I am forgetting what it is.
These winds are a head wind for us everyday. These same winds are killing me, along with bike weight and heat…….. Let me just intervene here for you folks who find God a hard thing to grasp. First let me say get over it, its real. Second, Hell is full of small, hot,dark rooms……. My dear God, but this is aggravatingMy left knee and hip started to become a problem on day 3, and have only gotten worse as we go. A fairly clear day awaits us. We have arrived in Beijing, and will take a slow train to Ulanbaataar.
It allows my knee a few days to rest, gets us out of some heat. So food did I hear someone say…………. But they do, I know because I snuck right up on one with my chopsticks………. We have had some strands of mystery vegetable soaked in salt and served with hot flat bread then dipped in cold chicken broth?????
A bowl of Tofu Soup, eaten down at the street level with a fried onion bun makes for a great start to thedays pedalling. Tonight we had stir fry veggies, with strangled beef and peppers, and some sort of dumplings we dipped in red hot chili paste………. So tomorrow, we figure out how to get 2 bikes and us to Mongolia by way of a Russian train. Yes, I am betting it will be fun. Waiting in the train station………. So long for now good night, and may God continue to bless us, and we ask those same blessings for all of you.
The trip has started, and we are landed in north central China in the coastal city of Qingdao. We will spend a few days assembling the bikes and gear. Hoping to be ready to ride on Monday morning. It is what is called Congee and it should be said that there are indeed many types and flavours of Congee. Congee is made of such grains as Millet,Rice and even beans. To that many things are added depending on region and flavour desired. This is rice Congee with steamed Pork strips, green onions which they eat tons of over here, and a slice of salt cured Tea Egg.
Believe me it tastes a lot worse than it looks. This is taken as we are leaving our home town of Coalinga, we stopped by the Church to get Prayed over and travel mercys. So, we began the day with a Durian Pie and coffee, bit of a taste bud assult in my tongues opinion. Let me explain, the pie is a small round pastry covered concoction of maybe 2.
It arrives to your table with a fruity sweet smell, and combine that with coffee aroma………and your thinking heaven, right. My tongue rolled up like a cheap garage door, knocking solidly up against that punching bag thing at the back of my throat. Those first few words that exited my mouth, were those of a different being or person. Surely, I would not speak insuch phrases………the realization is…….. All this is followed by a distinct gagging reflex,, once that is reswallowed you ask where the nearist confessional is located. And the next bite is worse.
So, we are back to getting used to Chinese lineups, thats were you stand in loose assembly waiting to be cut off or be shoved hard enough that nine offenders can slip thru.
A few more days and we will have it mastered me thinks. Had agreat visit with a computer tech Prof last night on the plane. It was interesting to hear his perspective on how US students achieve in comparison to those from out of country. Life eventually becomes so robust and rich within a Nation as a whole that all desire for upward mobility are lost as it pertains to the largest part of the population. Sadly, this has already begun in China. The newer student arrivals do not do so with the same vigor and focus of even just a few short years ago. Certainly looked like the bike boxes took a severe beating on the trip over.
My box was badly torn open so we are all Praying that nothing is missing. There are a fair number of folks who maintain the best method to ship a bike, is within a large clear plastic bag……….. We might put this notion to the test when Pine ships home frm eastern Europe at the end of the summer.
He would like to make it as far as Romania……. Well, we spent the day putting the bikes back together, took a lot longer than we had thought. Several parts got bent and busted during the trip over. We are somewhat jury-rigged as we leave but determined to make it all work.
Really un-phappy withthe brand new Son hub and the very questionable wiring method used. The tickets were bought,maybe 1 hour ago so there is no turning back now. The trip moves forward, and we fly to China May 21st at midnite from Los angeles. At this stage it is Mom and I and our son Pine who will fly over. We will spend the weekend putting our bikes back together and with any luck, we will be ready to start riding on Monday morning.

If our calculations are correct, we will have about 95 pounds on the bike, that is pretty light since further north in Mongolia we will be adding a lot more weight with extra water that we carry. I am pretty sick of buying tidbits and pieces for the trip, what started out as alot of fun just shopping around at night has now turned into a real pain in the rear as far as I am concerned.
Cowboy logic says if ya cant cook least ya kin drink. If any of you readers of this blog have advice on this matter by all means fill me in, love to hear it. For those in the later group- wait yer turn, I will be gone soon enough.
The departure date has been put back a little, looks like May of now……….. The whole Russian Visa thingy is proving to be a little larger hassle than we may have expected. Slowly and with the patient help of my wife we are getting all that put together and sorted out. So, for now the date for departure is later May, with Visa dates and it has to coincide with my son Pine getting done with his studies at San Jose State.
Here is a run down on what we have been doing to the bikes to get it all ready for the trip. On Pines bike it had 32 spoke wheels and we just felt we needed something a little stouter, plus we wanted another Dyno hub to charge all the electronic junk we will pack along. We changed out the brakes to Tektro, and put those venerated Salmon Brake Pads that all the tour cyclists brag about.
Now if any biker ever complains about the price of equine equipment there will surely be a quick fist fight. We double wrapped the drop bars, to relieve our hands and palms a wee bit on the rougher roads, we stayed with the Bar-Con shifters even though we thought of changing out to Paulies. So, Pine not has to find a saddle that he thinks he can tolerate for his time a-straddle his whip. I need your perspective. My wife is almost five months' pregnant.
Knowing how close my wife and her mother are they talk at least once a day, if not more , I asked my wife if she wanted to have her mother in the delivery room. Of course, if you have children, Bookshop weighs in as a better idea. Ayelet Waldman, 'Daughter's Keeper. Bookshop Santa Cruz, Pacific Ave. I said I felt that the delivery of our baby would be something we would share as a couple.
She wasn't too happy with my answer. She said because she was going through the labor that she should have whoever makes her the most comfortable nearby. We both backed off at that point. I love her mother, but am I way off-base wanting the delivery of our baby to be an event just for Vs. But if your older children say, in their 20s are driving you nuts with their irresponsible ways, go with Temple Beth El. Waldman's novel takes a hard look at one middle-age mother and her hellish older daughter. Eventually, though, each carefully constructed identity begins to unravel.
Curiously, Pye bases each of his novels on an actual historical character a creepy fact, considering that the murderer that sparked "Taking Lives" is still at large.
There are crimes in each novel, too prostitution, theft, murder. There's always some fine art, sometimes a lot. And, in each story, the question of personal choice looms large.

Our lives, Pye points out, are the summation of choices we make along the way. But in the end, it's Pye's concentrated writing style along with his well-paced plots, that lure you book to book to book. Consider this passage describing an afternoon of love-making: She was sure for a moment; he was lost for a moment; and it came to the same thing, two bodies managing to charm each other. I await with bated breath the book he's writing about the criminal king of the 19th century.
After I'm done, I might lend it to a friend. White-out Sometimes, talking about books can be just as much fun as reading them. Dan who can be found digging through the unsolicited book box at the Sentinel when he's not working on a hard-hitting expose for the city desk is a voracious reader. He's turned me on to plenty of great books over the years, and I always give his book suggestions a hard listen.
Besides, he's got a wacky sense of humor, a fact that was impressed upon me last month when he told me about all the very unfortunate mistakes he made as a volunteer for the first-ever San Francisco Writer's Conference. I told him that it was an innocent mistake; the thing about being a volunteer is you can't be fired. Prudie gathers that you asked your wife if she wanted her mother in the delivery room, she said she didn't know, at which point you announced your preference for only the two of you. It would have been wiser to open that discussion by saying what a wonderful event for two people to share and not bringing up the mother option.
Given the physical and emotional stresses of the situation, your best bet now is to invite your wife to have things just as she would like them. Prudie, by the way, has watched customs change drastically regarding delivery room "support. If anyone knows for whom these "movies" are shown, do drop a line.
In Prudie's day, should there be any social historians among you, the preferred delivery room contingent consisted of doctors, nurses and a hairdresser.
