Lemmivideo 507 - 12/23/2007

In an excercise in guerrilla video making and complete chaos Lemmiwinks shot their video this Sunday in several locations across Panama. The band and crew were in two cars and I was riding my bike. Surprisingly we were only approached by the Police at the Via España Location. (3rd photo)

New Bikes! - 12/5/2007

Picked up this bike at Goodwill for $35. Since this will be my "sleep-outside/ grocery-store/ short errands" bicycle I have installed the rear rack and folding baskets on it.
While I was there I saw this c.1980s Peugeot Mixte and since it also was $35 I bought it too.
