Zanna Campanula of the revolutionary trousers
of cycling to our local lake, Plötzensee, and jumping in for a swim. there’s a man-made beach on one side, but that can get busy and costs money, so the anarchists among us jump over the fence on the other side and swim with the moorhens. today we had the added excitement of someone stealing the bag with our dry clothes in … but to cut a long story short he got stopped by a fast-thinking angler and a fellow swimmer + his dog with a hell of a sprint. the would-be thief must have had quite a shock. not as much of a shock as he might have got to open the bag to find it full of nothing but our stinky old clothes and towels. how was he to know that alb wears a “valuables” safe in his swimming trunks, harharhar?
anyway, i’m counting 1km per swim (we’re in the water for about 45 mins, but slow swimming), so am now at 39k for the year!
