Places to see

If I ever visit Tokyo, I want to tour this place: It is called G-Cans and it is composed of tunnels, pumps and tanks for the storage of excess water in the rainy season.

I would have taken a picture, but was too hungry

After getting back from Costco early this afternoon, I was ready for lunch. An avocado I had gotten a few days ago got ripe prematurely and so I had to eat it now or it would end up being thrown out. We always keep corn tortillas on hand and we had a small amount of roasted chicken and a little bit of cheddar cheese.

I layed-out three tortillas on an oven safe plate, then added shredded cheese and then chicken. The oven was baking and so I let the plate bake for a bit and then switched it to broil. Once it was all melty, I put on the slices of avocado, some tomatoes, scallions, then a dollop of sour cream and finally a lot of Tabasco sauce

It was a colorful and pretty dish but hunger overcame me and so there is no photographic evidence.

Twittered but not posted

I ran a horrible pace for the 2nd half. The first leg--south on 27 down to 225 took 30 minutes. The second leg--from 225 to Lowell Road in Concord took 54 minutes. Then North to Carlisle center took another 40 minutes. The final leg took about 47 minutes. I got passed by a woman in the final leg, but found that I had it in me to go faster and stayed with her for half a mile till our paths diverged. Then I slowed right back down. I think after a dozen miles or thereabouts, one just looses the will to push hard.
