Kongo watched his first professional bicycle race today, the Amgen Tour of California. This was stage three of an 8-stage race all over the state. Fortunately, the path of this race passed just a few blocks from Kongo’s home.
So early this May Day morning the monkey packs up his gear and heads out on a short road trip to Ojai (pronounced OH-hi). It was a nice drive with the top down under a clement sun, passing through fecund valleys with jasmine in the air. It was the kind of day you wanted to get poetic about. Very bucolic.
