After Copenhagen, I made my way around the Baltic Sea visiting Berlin, Tallin (Estonia), and Helsinki. Berlin had a lot of history; the entire city of Tallin is wifi'ed and some of the best computer techies in the world come from Estonia (who knew); and while running in Helsinki, I was reminded of one of the greatest ironman racers when I was in my early twenties, Pauli Kiuru. My favorite way to explore a city is to do a long run. You get to cover so much more ground than walking, and you get to explore trails and paths that cannot be covered in a car. And 10 miles go by so fast when you are exploring a new city. The sunrise picture over the Baltic reminded me of a Rothko painting, and the last picture was taken at the Holocaust Museum in Berlin, where there was an installation projecting names in memory of those killed during the genocide.
I'm basically interested in all things funny, health and triathlon related, and sustainable living. This blog used to accompany a website I built to raise awareness about cancer as well as raise money for different causes.
