Catch-update: Bumps and London

I’ve been way too busy (or way too without-adequate-Internet-access) in the last few weeks to post anything here. Since things have slowed down a bit now, here’s a part one of a quick, photo-based summary of life since the last time I blogged:

I saw a rollerskier for the first time in the UK! Apparently there's a whole club of them. Should have brought mine along (just kidding. Way too bulky, and it's still really flat around here.)

Excited for blades at Boat Club Dinner, with everybody. Many thanks to Eddie (right), Giorgio (left), Burfiend, and Rob for coaching! Photo credit: Giorgio Divitini (actually, somebody else, but I can't remember who, and it was Giorgio's camera...)
