there seems to be a new fitness craze in london. it involves ‘running’ with giant steps, but the object of the exercise is to go as slow as you can with the biggest steps as possible !

instead i hid in the trees and stalked a photo.

it’s very popular to put people in glass boxes in london. here are the latest ones.
they are actors in a bullet proof box in Trafalgar Square. they are reading all the year numbers spanning a million years or something. it’s very good.
i didn’t have time to stop and watch it all (it runs 24 hours until friday i think).
if i find a link i’ll post it for you.

here are some gloves from america. Those travelling from the south of england should turn left on the way up to scotland and keep going. don’t be sidetracked by the funny-speaking people on the way – you will meet lots of funny-speaking people when you get there.
when you do get there, go to a place called Phoenix Arizona, and ask for Jason of what’s THAT about
he found these gloves whilst out cycling. you can see his tyre on the left

he writes “I’ve been putting together a collection of ‘shoes’ in the road always amazes me that there will be one lonely abandoned shoe in the middle of the road and I wonder how it got there.. I wrote a haiku about it. it’s on my site.”
go find.
