The Road

Kingman, Arizona.
June 2009.

Blog post title taken from the song of the same name by Frank Turner.

Someone broke into our cellar room and stole my racing cycle. It's the second time a road bike has been stolen from me. After all the money I've invested in new Shimano gear levers as well as new pedals, and the time I spent working on the bike, this is a bummer. I guess I'll have to go by car or public transport for a while.

In addition, I've had to withdraw from participating in the excavation of a megalithic grave, which was scheduled to begin in mid-March and end on the 8th of April. However, the new semester starts on the 4th of April. I've been strongly advised against missing the first week of the semester - which makes sense to me, as I have to admit. Also, I've been invited to a job interview. I had applied for a part-time job at a museum two weeks before I applied for a job as a digger. On account of the museum job being not as short termed as the excavation work, I have chosen a priority.

New pictures coming soon.

I'm a firm believer in the saying "when one door closes another one opens" - looks like that's your position at the moment. Good that you got some other things going. Route 66 has great photographic opportunities - this one is good!

Yes it is, T.! I love Route 66. In some places, the 21st century doesn't seem to have started yet. They're still stuck in the 1960s, 1970s... which isn't a bad thing. Amboy was my favourite roadside attraction. I'm sure you've been there, too.

Unglaublich ... in Keller wird eingebrochen ... hier auf dem Land sicher nicht, aber es ist beängstigend, was dir passiert ist.

Naja, man macht sich halt schon Gedanken - ob es nächstes Mal vielleicht die Wohnungstür ist anstelle der Kellertür.
