Hamburger Rolls and the Twilight Crit

Hikes... hiking... yeah - we are still at one hike for the year.
But Saturday was the first nice day in a long time and we made the most of it.  Anya took inspiration from Mark Bittman's recent burger posting and combined it with her mastery of his bread recipe to form the ultimate burger in a roll.   Combine that with sun and a back deck and you have one nice lunch.

Then we finished up the day with a stroll over to watch the Twilight Criterium in Ballard.  Luckily the only crash we saw was near the end of the women's final race.  All in all, it was a good set of races.  The final category ended in a 4 abreast dash for the finish line.  I can't wait till next year!

Twin Falls - The first (mini) hike (of many?) for 2010

A quick morning trip up to Olallie State Park to see Twin Falls.  The lack of snow makes me wonder how early the hiking season will start.  The bigger question of course is whether or not I'll be able to get my lazy ass in shape to enjoy an early, or late hiking season.

Budapest pictures posted. Finally the Euro trip of 2009 is in the books, officially.

Europe 2009 - Budapest

So here the pictures of our days in Budapest. Of course there is a slight cap at the start as Anya was recovering in the hotel room for the first day, but after that the weather was nice and I think I can safely say we pretty much saw everything there was to see in Budapest... except maybe for a few of their world famous baths.

Vienna pictures, lukewarm off the press

Europe 2009 - Vienna

Again no commentary to read just yet, but I put a fair amount into the photo descriptions. Budapest should be coming shortly.

Prague Photos - They Do Exist!

Europe 2009 - Prague

Yes, yes. Two months after starting our trip to Eastern Europe, I'm finally starting to post the rest of the pictures. We'll start with our first three days in Prague. I'll save the commentary for later, but as you can see we got really lucky with the weather. Now the question is, can I finish Vienna and Budapest in less than a month? Stay tuned.

I'm on a Bus - Prague to Vienna

Bumping down the road in a bus to Brno, hopefully to be followed by a transfer to Vienna. The bus is running late due to a slow boarding and a passenger who got on the wrong bus. Sigh. So far so good though, here is a brief collection of pictures from Prague.
