One of the great things of living in California are jalapeños. Spicy, green, fresh and fiery jalapeños.
Believe it or not but it is impossible to find fresh jalapeños in the Netherlands. Unless you grown them yourself of course. I was about to start a jalapeño project this year, but then P found a job in Los Angeles so we moved.
And I bought a jalapeño plant in LA! So I’m harvesting like crazy now, and we have to eat a lot of spicy Mexican food.
I bought a bike last week! It’s so nice to ride again, I didn’t ride a bike for 8 weeks, the longest since I’ve learned to ride. So that would be 27 years or so 😉 The weather is so good here, and I enjoy to do some grocerie shopping with my new minty-green cruiser.
In Amsterdam I used riding my bike all the time. I didn’t even had a driver license until I was 29! So yes, that’s just 2 years ago 😉
In Amsterdam you need a bike, you can’t live there without having one. Owning a car isn’t necessary, to be precise it’s only annoying. You need a parking permit and even then it’s hard to find a parking spot. In the city centre (where we used to live) the streets are narrow and you’ll get easily stuck in traffic.
