I took a small drive this weekend. I'm not quite sure where I went, but the road wound through several villages and over a spectacular river, surrounded by the rice paddies.
I passed several cars along the way. When I figured that I had gone far enough for the day, I turned around and passed the some of the same cars while I was going the other direction. Since I was in a rather remote area and I suppose it wasn't typical to see an American girl driving a bike down the road there, several of the drivers excitedly told their passengers and waved as I passed by them again. It was rather entertaining.
On another note, I surpassed 1,000 km on my bike this weekend! For those of you, like me, who have absolutely no concept of how far that is, it is just over 621 miles.
