It is fun to see the word from my saddle. All kinds of things that you can't stop for in a car or on a bus are just waiting for you when you ride your bike.
I was on my way home from an event that was over before I got there. The Mission was showing every sign of Summer beginning. El Salvador won something, football I assume, and there were cars honking and El Salvadoran flags waving out of cars. Every corner had a street performer of some sort, including a poet standing on his head.
There was a Felliniesque band. They were pretty good.
Mission Dolores decided to be more colourful. Maybe it could hear the upside down poet.
What do you see when you are out? What do you stop for when you are out riding that you wouldn't see, otherwise?
