I got a Bike more or less a week ago and promised it that my next post would be about how fast and cool it is.
It is actually so cool that i am always expecting it not to be there after i park it and chain it up outside my house at night...
It is quite fast though today i had to bring it to be repaired already as the left pedal was just a little bit weak...
Also i came to realize one important thing... obeying street rules in China with your bike will only be a cause of harm! I guess you become the X factor in a very difficult and complex equation (the street) which people do not know how to relate to..
The first hour going around the city was an hour in which i caused distress to other fellow bikers. I guess they are not used to rules. So finally when a man collided with an older lady because i was doing the right thing by staying on my side of the road, i decided i had enough of the rules and that it was probably safer for me and others to just be part of the madness!
Which is so much fun! Actually i fit in pretty well i must say!.. But don't worry im careful!
So now i have a request! My bike is all black (you can see it in the pic) and pretty but it needs some extra kudos to gain respect on the road..
So I am asking you all to please think of how we can fix my bike up! I want suggestions! Do you have any cool sticker you would like to send to me to put on? Or anything i can attach to my bike anywhere? Please suggest! I am open!
So many cool things are happening around here, and i am making some really nice friends!
Campus is so beautiful! And i started playing football with some friends! So it seems as if things are working out well slowly!
I've seen some beautiful places and i am scared of how much this all feels like home..
