So the Red Rocket of Bologna has been replaced, in Barcelona, by this newly refurbished vintage road bike whose color, the bike shop insists, is Cava, not Champagne 😉
They have this deal where if you return the bike in under a year you get half of what you paid back. So, assuming it isn’t stolen, it costs about 30 Euros more than renting a bike for the month and you get a much cooler bike. That said, I have never owned nor ridden this type of "cooler" bike before and I have discovered that the placement of the brakes makes it very likely that I will crash into an unsuspecting tourist who aimlessly wanders into a bike lane without looking. Wish us all luck.

Remember Chicano Moratorium 1970:
"When it came to war and the need for cannon fodder, [Latinos] were prime meat."
Tour Pu Luong Retreat in Vietnam
http://puluongvietnam.com/pu-luong-retreat-tour/, Chicanos staged the largest anti-war demonstration by any ethnic group in the U.S. – but hardly anyone knows about it.

OMG! I thought goodwill took anything!!! I have this huge mirror that’s big as my car so I can’t travel with it and they said they can’t take it for safety hazard reasons♀️♀️♀️(pic in comments) location Reno, Nevada
Another good busy day. I got a Peloton ride in today, my 261st ride, then did some work with the tomatoes before I head out of town. Straightened them up a little, fertilized, clipped some leaves and branches off. It will be interesting to see what they look like when I get home. I was motivated to walk up to the Arcteryx store and talk to them about my new walking shoes that I really like but the soles are wearing out faster than I expected. They think it is because of how much I have walked since I bought them and walking in a city on concrete will wear them out sooner. I learned I need to switch between other walking shoes more often than I do and maybe pondering getting new shoes more often than I use to 3 to 4 months instead of 4 to 6 months. I will ponder this on my trip before committing to get another pair. It was a excellent walking day today of 21,258 steps according to my Jawbone UP. I was also fortunate to get my glasses checked before the trip, run into Madhavi Padval (always wonderful to see her) and meet two really amazing women at different times during the day, when out and about: Cecilia Gonzales and Clarina Bradshaw. Lucky me, now to get ready to pack for and fly to Amsterdam tomorrow.
