The Lowlands of Holland are exceptionally notorious for the windy climate. This is especially evident while one is trying to ride a bike across the flatlands that are wide open and completely exposed. Ironically, no matter in which direction you are cycling nor given the time of day, it is a fact of life here that the wind is always blowing against you. This is strange but true, every Dutch person will admit it. However, this early Monday morning on my way to work, it proved to be a pleasant exception for me. Something I certainly deserved, now into my fifth week of biking back and forth to my place of employment. Unexpectedly, the smooth gusts of wind swept up behind me and blew me and my bicycle at exceptional speed along the bike path. What a relief. And it didn't even rain a single drop. This must be symbolic for the fine day ahead of me, so I will now take advantage of it. Yes, and good luck.
