Sea of Bikes

A quick post just to commemorate our day-trip to Santa Barbara. The photo is in front of a former hotel converted to freshman dorm about a mile from campus. At least 75% of residents ride bikes; others skateboard. This was a mere sliver of the bike racks.

Also on our visit we heard NY TImes columnist Thomas Friedman speak about his latest book — Hot, Flat, and Crowded. What an amazing speaker and thinker! I wish he could be Energy Czar, or Czar of anything to lead our country. The lecture we heard live is also at, right sidebar, you’ll need to download Silverlight..

No knitting content: somehow I couldn’t really knit in the car and we were otherwise really busy.
