Velo Blues in Davis

How cool IS this? The mbta has taken out the open bike racks at Davis Square and put in this cage. Pedal and Park. Entry and exit is carded. The bikes are *safe* ( God knows I single-handedly kept the bicycle bell industry going, it was stolen so many times. Plus rear tyre, seat, even handlebars once!) – man! I would totally sign up for this. I walked down the bike path today and it was so peaceful. I love that biking is not only sanctioned as an option, it's given thought and preference by the planning authorities. There are bike lanes and yield signs. There are bike rental hubs, you can sent them short term and return them. I really, really miss having the space and freedom to zip around the city, nimbly maneuvering traffic, confident that people will follow the traffic rules and not dart across when it's not their signal. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh. When will India ever catch up? Not in my lifetime, I'm afraid. #boston #BostonDiaries, #travel #bicycles #publictransport #musing #thirdworldproblems #blog

I usually try to do two international trips every year, one in Asia, one elsewhere, but this year has been remarkably poor – both moneywise and healthwise, so I’d only done short trips within India (Assam, Goa, Delhi, Jaipur) until August, when I went to Portugal. And of course, I’d timed my Schengen visa application really tight. I had wanted to wait until some funds hit my bank account and realized quite late that VFS can take up to 15 working days to process it since it’s forwarded to Goa! Grrr.

So I ended up totally scrambling and getting to the visa centre a bit earlier than I’d planned.
The good thing was I have most of my documents scanned and digitized and I had already bought travel insurance that covered me through September of this year. (I buy it online and you can find several options with companies like ICICI Lombard). (more…)
