Ignoring the classes of mine that Jane has been to, we have only been to one yoga teacher’s class twice on this whole trip. Jelena Lieberberg teaches at Spirit Yoga in Berlin, and is also a lululemon Ambassador (like me). She teaches in German, but is able to communicate what she is asking so clearly this hasn’t been a problem for us.
Today Jane and I met up with Jelena and her daughter Ivy for lunch. Since we leave tomorrow (gulp), today was our last chance.
Ivy was very interested in our trip, and had an amazing array of questions ready to ask us. We are very used to (read: bored of) the questions adults ask. Ivy had a completely different arsenal of questions for us, showing that she had really thought about our trip, what it would entail, and the logistics of it.
Are those your only clothes? Where do you get water? Where are your bikes now? Where do you go to the bathroom?
Where do you go poop?
Did you sleep in a tent last night? Where are you sleeping, because I know somewhere in Berlin where people put up tents.
It was amazing, and she was so smart, adorable, and on it. Watch out Jelena, this one is going places!
It’s A Wrap
After lunch Jane and I held a bike-wrapping party. Like our first flight of the trip, we are able to wrap our bikes in plastic sheeting for the flight to China. It is meant to rain this evening, so we are getting it done today.
We lowered our saddles, let some air out of the tires, turned our handlebars, put plastic bottles around our rear derailleurs to protect them, and then wrapped cardboard around anything else we thought we should protect. Then each bike got wrapped up in thick plastic sheeting we bought at the hardware store.
They look fairly safe, and I am sure they are better wrapped than they were our first time doing this. All of it is for naught if some airline employee decides to not put our bikes on the plane, or run over them with his truck. Those things are beyond our control though, so best not to worry about it.
We ended the evening in Jesse’s local, a great little bar that has fantastic cocktails. The drinks were amazingly delicious, and as great cocktails tend to do, they got us to reminiscing about our younger days, and the many cocktails we’d shared while living in London.
A perfect way to end our stay here with one of our oldest friends. ♥
