YGT life/2 - bike evolution

I think I am the only YGT who run out of money both the first and the second month of salary.
Here the reason:

(the very first night, the only picture. Special lady's shoes - exclusive model, carbon sole)

(below here my past. You clearly see an evolution in the gear )



Here my favourite way to work, when my knee could still stand it (I've done it for real - back and forth!) :

route

An idea of what I see:


For one hour (two a day) I am in another world - a surreal one, so beautiful, so different from the Holland I knew and dislike.
Then I get in the office, check the email, go to the kitchen, have coffee with the section, go back, sit, work. Wait for the way back.
The first day I cycled in they asked me during coffee why I lwas looking so happy. I was all red, and sleepy. But the back of the mind was all full with the salty freshness or the air, the lunar image of the dunes. I was glowing.

(the long way is particularly amusing at night, when the only thing I see is the back light of the irish housemate, and lots of rabbits keep jumping on the road while I'm passing - adventurous)

here you find the original website, including an english version ( I liked the italian more). Maybe one day I'll get to these bikes.

E' sempre bello leggerti, anche in inglese! =D Suggestive anche le foto!

Ma e il dottorato? Non ho capito come è andata a finire la questione...

Un abbraccio!

l'inglese è venuto fuori inconsapevole e l'ho lasciato. ygt in inglese ho deciso.
il dottorato l'ho lasciato ad una settimana dall'inizio, per il posto in estec di un anno.
scelta giustissima

Ah ho capito, non pensavo l'avessi proprio abbandonato, ma se hai deciso che è stata la scelta migliore per te, non posso che appoggiarti! =)

Buone pedalate!
