Biker strength

For the past week and a half, the wind has been reigning. He rushes gusting, trying to throw off the bike and wherever you turn, a sharp scattering of rain flies right in your face. And sometimes, sitting at home and listening to the howls of the wind, I begin to fear that I will literally blow the roof off (my apartment is right under the roof).
Again, it turns out that I am going to write something only when I go somewhere. But I a blog with the intention to write not only about , but also about thoughts and all events. So I will write about the last week that will be remembered.
Last week, a guest fell on me again, or rather a guest on couchsurfing. This is the fourth time that I host free travelers. Formerly they were: a Russian girl, an Italian on a bicycle, about which I here, it seems, was told also by a boy from Belgium, but with the Italian Lorenzo. This time the guest was a very young girl from Poland. She finished school and decided to spend a whole traveling around Europe to see the and understand what she wants to do more and what to do and where and where to study. I know that such a practice – a year of traveling after graduating from a university school is quite common in some circles, but I myself have never even dreamed of such a thing. With all my passion for travel, I would not want to do this without interruption. I know for myself that even from a very interesting vacation, if he has been dragging on for more than two weeks, I am drawn to return home as soon as possible.
I go to The Hague to the students now 3 times a week. One of them – certainly Saturday. Last Saturday was again a long one, with another to Rotterdam, to the library. Due to the change in the schedule, I now have an hour break between two students, which I usually spend over a cup of coffee somewhere in a cozy cafe. And the cafe is trying to find something new. This time I chose a cafe that has a special feature – bicycles. Well, bicycles in Holland surprise no one, of course. The same place is positioning itself as a cafe – workshop where you can drink coffee and eat while you are repaired with your iron horse. Bicycles stand there between the tables and hang on the walls, and choosing a table in the back of the room, I discovered that there is a piano next to it, above which is also a bicycle!
So, since I don’t have much time and at the same time it is still too early for lunch, I decided to take a small toast to coffee — just read one library book. Actually, I really love cappuccino, but lately I’ve been encountering another variety of it, the Cortado. In the description it means that it is a super strong cappuccino, and it is served in a smaller cup than a regular cappuccino, although more so than an espresso.
So, I’m sitting here for my book, I drank coffee long ago, and everyone does not carry a toast to me! I went up to the counter – alle, you did not forget, I ordered a toast from you, such, you know, with cheese and nuts? Oh, she throws up her hands at the girl behind the desk, – I’m sorry, please, I’ll prepare it for you right now! After that, my toast was brought to me rather quickly, and they also offered me a moral compensation for a long wait, a drink from the restaurant. The toast, by the way, turned out to be quite large – with three slices of bread instead of two, with dates and nuts. As another waitress explained to me at parting, to bolster biker strength.

Our dialogue

Washing dishes in hot water without chemicals turned out to be very difficult. Replacing the water in the pelvis several times, finally got clean plates. When washing glasses – recalled grandmother’s recipe – changed the water from hot to cold. Wiping the glasses, I saw how they shine. When the turn came to metal utensils […]
