Waiter Rant and exercise in Beijing
I booked a flight to Cambodia. Next Wednesday I fly south for a few days to visit a very dear camp friend from a whole bunch of summers ago. My friend and her husband, with their young child in tow, work for the United States government. Since I am only a seven hour (each way) trip away I will not pass the opportunity up to go for a visit
I woke up this morning at 3:30am and was inspired to work. I got a bit antsy and decided to see if I could exercise. I made it thirty and a half minutes on the treadmill. That’s a personal record as I never run on one of those things. My only other option is running in the 4 degree weather (before windchill) and I decided on the treadmill. I am noticing that I can be so productive when I am alone in a foreign country with a 14 hour time difference separating me from all of my normal distractions.
After eating the lunch shown above I got out in the city for a very lovely walk. I have been mainly stuck inside in front of a computer so I notice that I want to cause trouble for myself. The walks help. Any exercise is good. I am definitely an outside person. The cold weather makes it a bit challenging as I am not conditioned for it quite yet. I bet that by the time I leave here I’ll be up to speed.
I believe that today we will be visiting vendors. That’s always an adventure. I am now going to shower and head down to breakfast.
