My sleeping patterns are slowly returning to normal. I still wake up quite early, between 04:00 and 05:00, but I found a good book to read when that happens: Baudolino by Umberto Eco. And wouldn’t you know it, Istanbul, in its former life as Constantinople, features in it.
Rode my bike to have breakfast with Jon. The weather is incredible! That’s nice, especially after the freezing damp of Riga. Today it is about 74ºF with a blue sky – perfect bicycling weather, I’d say!
The leaves are brilliant this year!
