On Your Bike
We have two new bicycles, presents from my old friend Peter Adams, Cycling through the Bulgarian countryside in the autumn is wonderful. The trees are a riot of colour: reds, greens, browns, oranges and yellows. Your eyes have a visual treat and you get some exercise and fresh air at the same time.
At last, my dear Irisha's enthusiasm for collecting more and more walnuts seems to be declining and she is getting keener on cycling.
We have not had any rain for a long time, so there are a lot of stones and dust on the roads, but fortunately our bikes have chunky tyres that grip really well.
