Premature Autumn

What an awesome afternoon for a bike ride. Nice weather, sunny. A little on the windy side. My muscles ache now even my arms, it was kind of hard pushing against the wind, especially near the beach. But it is a nice kind of a ache, the one that tells you did something good for your body. Today I parked 1 km closer to home, which meant more riding, but the street was gorgeous. It was carpeted in autumn leaves and covered in an archway of trees. It is a little premature for Autumn, but I enjoyed it nontheless. Better now than never.

Hoy anduve unos km mas en bici que lo normal. Tratando de extender un poco la aventura. Estacione a 1 km de donde estaciono siempre, no mucho mas, pero suficiente, especialmente con lo ventoso que estaba. Ahora me duelen todos los musculos hasta los brazos por algun motivo raro. Costaba mucho empujar en contra del viento especialmente cerca de la playa. La calle donde estacione, estaba cubierta de hojas otonales en el piso y por arriba los arboles se arqueaban cubriendo el cielo. Muy linda. Cuando volvimos disfrutamos unas ricas pizzas hechas en casa (amasadas antes de salir) y miramos dos peliculas muy buenas, una se llama Eddington and Einstein y la otra Gran Torino. Las dos me gustaron mucho, Clint Eastwood dirige y actua en Gran Torino. Trata la historia de un red neck American ex soldado super racista que odia a los asiaticos porque el peleo contra los koreanos. Su esposa muere y los vecinos que vienen a vivir al lado son viednamitas. Al principio los odia, pero de a poco los empieza a conocer y desarrolla una relacion con ellos que no puede ni tener con sus propios hijos o nietos. Bien hecha, bien actuada. Clint esta viejo. Vale la pena verla.

We watched two movies: Gran Torino and Eddington and Einstein. Both movies worth seeing. Eddington and Einstein is about the time when Einstein is working in Germany trying to disprove Newton's Gravity Laws. Eddington on the English side trying to prove Einstein wrong, but neither of them want to get involved in the politics of the time and in secret write to each other and colaborate to achieve a scientific discovery.
Gran Torino is a Clint Eastwood film, about a red neck american war veteran, racist and disgusted with the way society behaves, especially his family. His wife dies and he is left alone to share his days with asian neighbours whom he hates. In a gang initiation ritual his young vietnamese neighbour tries to steal his Gran Torino and gets caught. He becomes enraged with the whole family, but soon realises that they are not what he thinks they are and they devolop a loving relationship. Good movies. Great Saturday.
