Puotila metro, 8:04
Yesterday swept by in a cloud of sleeplessness and jetlag. I staggered out of the house, baffled, and caught the bus to Itäkeskus. Today I get back in the saddle again.
Having pumped up the front tyre a little, I speed through the autumnal morning to the metro. My left knee continues to hurt (from what? from when? who knows?) but I get there in the standard seven minutes.
I see some of the usual bikes, including the one that I suspect someone has abandoned here. I leave my bag open and step back a few paces to photograph the scene. I pick up my bag and head for work.
