First post! European vacation

OK, it's time for me to start some kind of a blog. So here goes! Dear Diary...

I'm currently in Europe with my little brother. We're here primarily for a bicycle tour in France that we're doing with my friends Ben and Diane and a bunch of people that I don't know. Since we have a little extra time on our hands, we flew out to Europe early. We spent a rather tired Monday in Iceland eating up some good (but expensive!) grub, and then continued on the next morning to Paris, which is where we are now.

Our first night, we met up with our friend from childhood (I spent 4th grade living in France), Nadia. French food for all; it seems like there's a lot of that around here.

Today we did a lot of walking around, although neither of us is really into seeing much in the way of touristy sites. We did some shopping (I bought some Asterix and Iznogoud comics), then came back to our puny hotel room to snooze and watch the Tour de France. Eventually we roused ourselves sufficiently to go on a rather unpleasant (it's muggy like a bastard out here!) run. Then, after some more time in our puny hotel room, we went out for some Iranian grub. Good stuff!

OK, that's about all I've got to say at present. Until later!
