1. The Alyn Bike Ride was gruelling. Lots of fun, but gruelling. I may post my daily diaries in the next few days. Baruch Hashem, no injuries, no flats and no SAG vans.
2. Yerushalayim needs a power wash. It is really filthy. I don't know whether I'm just noticing an old phenomenon or it's worse than ever. On top of that, the Rakevet Hakalah (the light train) (known widely as the rakevet haklalah (the cursed train)), has managed to create massive chaos and traffic jams in Central J'lem. My only thought was that this had to have been planned. I refuse to believe that it's possible to randomly cause so much chaos, congestion and inconvenience without trying. (It is no wonder that a new, reform-minded mayor of J'lem was overwhelmingly elected during the ride. Good luck).
3. London was depressing. I met with about 15 different financial and legal firms over three days and there wasn't a remotely optimistic word among them. A bunch of Dead Men Walking. While we are facing difficult times here, everyone expects that it will be even worse, and longer, in the UK and Europe.
Lots more to say but I have to get some sleep.
