This week’s long run

Yesterday was blistering hot, so I ran this morning instead. A lot of rowers were out on the Yarkon.


At the Daniel Center for rowing, stopped for a moment to admire the sky.


The sun was out in full strength, which made for some pretty dramatic lighting, with all the clouds.


Ducks and rowers (this was taken on my way back).


This cheeky little egret was waiting by a group of pretty terrible fishermen. They would toss it all their small fry, which is much more convenient than having to go fish for them itself. 


Monthly antique market at the port.


My cat, totally unimpressed that I ran 9K this morning.

This week’s recommendations

Podcast: The Daily, by the New York Times. A 20 minute daily podcast that doesn’t sum up the news of the day, but instead gives interesting insights into a few top stories. There’s a very good reason that this podcast has become so popular even though it’s so relatively new.

Book: If you’re looking for an easy summer read, try M.C. Beaton‘s Hamish Macbeth or Agatha Raisin mystery novels. They’re dirt cheap, even in dead tree format, short, not too trashy, not too violent — the beach books.

Tea: if you haven’t watched this delightful YouTube TED Ed video by Shunan Teng, I highly recommend that you do. It briefly goes through the history of tea: youtu.be/LaLvVc1sS20

And also: Monument Valley 2 is out and it’s as awesome as the first one was. Really taking my time to enjoy it.
