Some Weekend Exercise: Don’t try this @ Home

Somehow this weekend we ended up getting a lot of fresh air. On Saturday, we walked around the fringes of Zhuwei up mountain roads, along past farms, through a University campus, stopped for a nice meal, and took a subway train home! It’s kind of our monthly ritual these days…

Of course, our saunter in the woods was somewhat less demanding than this gentleman’s effors in the urban woods…

Anyway, let’s go… Those strolls … wow! They really tire you out!

And that’s it for Sunday!

These pictures were taken over a number of walks, and composited together as I stupidly forgot to take my camera! Though composited, they capture nicely the essence of our walks over the weekend!

    I live in France and I promise you that we are not all into that urban exercise. Then again, this is the land of the Eiffel Tower – THE thing that every climber has to climb.

    FYI, just the steps nearly killed me!

    It’s odd because Parkour looks so like some of the Asian Kungfu movies, I can’t help but think there is a source of inspiration there for it!

    These guys are quite athletic… wonder how many broken bones they get… Thanks for stopping by.

    We’re getting loads of good wines in our stores these days… what’s a good one for 2008?

    Parkour is the “safe” version, there was a type that kids did in the mid-90’s that involved rooftops and death. They are fit – and I am fit to watch.

    Not q wine drinker, sorry, no advice for ya.
