Strix the harbinger
guards the exit gate, quizzing all
Who will pass this night?

The Z-Man Does the Sub-Continent
























This is the face side of a post card we received today from Taylor Z.  Apparently he was not in computer cafe country at the time. The back side of the 3 x 5 has lines of tiny Taylor scrawl that get progressively smaller as he neared the bottom. More to say than room to say it. He picked up this Giant Expedition in Kathmandu, "a 7- speed Shimano STX touring rig. Fairly well suited to the task. Threw on the local saddle for flare. Pretty Comfy."

He is riding his way south across India, then east to Thailand and eventually Bali before heading home. At one point he planned to crash at my daughter's apartment in Bangkok, but I am not privy to their ever changing plans. I just hope they both eventually make it home safe and happy.
