Brooklyn is always great for wandering

You know it’s December when WordPress is snowing 🙂

Yesterday I walked just over 4 miles (6.5 km) while running errands— a much shorter walk than Sunday (above), but enjoyable. I downloaded the app Runkeeper to my phone, so from now on I can track mileage, etc. Brilliant little app, simple to use.

Judging from the readout of yesterday, in comparison Sunday’s wander was probably ~9 miles (14.5 km). I walked from the South Slope to Court Street to meet a friend in town from Amsterdam whom I’ve not seen since last year. After our brunch at Frankies, we walked in a meandering way, down pretty streets or interesting streets, through Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, and into South Williamsburg. We stopped in Fort Greene for a cocktail, and then again in Williamsburg before retuning in a taxi to have dinner in the Slope. It was a good long wander, and such fantastic weather for it the past few days. (I mapped my / our route manually in photoshop, as I hadn’t the app yet Sunday.)

In other news, I noticed the other day on the dashboard of this blog that, although it reports small numbers, it seems to’ve gone rather international of late, much more than usual. I like it.
