Shimokita to Nakameguro Summer Night Ride

Just about the only time it's really pleasant to ride in Tokyo at the moment is during the nights, when it starts cooling down a little. (Today, it's 37degrees teamed with some crazy humidity!)

Luke and I took off around 9pm last night. I rode along this Nature Walk listening to this on my way to meet him. (Thanks James) I was on some kind of high, night riding through Tokyo's backstreets, running my hands along the tops of bushes as I rode past, wind in my, well, fringe. Love you Japan.

We couldn't believe it when we found this very convenient table riverside in Nakameguro! In true Ghetto style we sat here, drinking our beers, talking about all sorts of things. Painting, creating in general, boys and girls... A pretty awesome Tokyo summer night.

"Look at it with squinty eyes"

"OMG it looks like space!"
