Getting around
Barcelona, Nice, Milan and next weekend Paris. Mostly it's for touch, but we're in Milan right now just for Easter and a bit of shopping. Staying in a chic palazzo (Segreti) close to the Duomo and about to head out into the street.

We're on the hunt for clothes and maybe some stylish flatware for the new apartment.

EDIT: Two days later and we're mostly successful, no flatware though. Sore feet after miles and miles of wandering about between shopping, museums and restaurants. Great way to spend Easter!

Loan Rider
I took the Stromer in for a service last week. Don't know how long it's going to be in the shop, but they were kind enough to let me take away an older model (v1.1, apparently) while it's there.

Not bad for a loaner, somewhat poorer range, but otherwise it's not much different from mine, performance-wise. The seat and handle-grips are stock, which means it's not quite as comfortable.

I'm not complaining though. I had expected to spend a week wheezing around on my old muscle-powered bike. Nice service they are providing.

Barca
Refereed a tournament in Barcelona last weekend. Leila came along and we spent a couple of extra days there exploring the city (visiting a house designed by Gaudi and going to listen to some live Tunisian blues music). The weather was variable, but warmed up nicely on the last day. Lovely.
