Today I bought a used bike. I took the subway for 30 minutes to my meeting point at Nakano-sakaue Station, an area just northwest of Shinjuku. Then, I had to get my new wheels home, without the help of the train.
Then I started to recognize where I was…
And finally, home!
The whole trip was just over 10 km and took me 2 hours, which is funny because the walking directions on Google Maps are listed at 2 hours and 5 minutes… well, OK, I did stop and buy beer. I couldn’t bring my new mamachari home with an empty basket!
It’s true, this little mama chariot doesn’t look quite as mama as it could, which is just fine by me. It gets my precious cargo home just the same.
ps – You can see my route here.
