Up on Ukrainian Christmas Morning to find rain. Hmmmmmm. Heavy rain. Was supposed to be tomorrow.
PS: Nothing from St. Nick as Ukrainians get their presents in December on St.Nicholas Day, and only if they were good 🙂
Today has not been a traditional Ukrainian Christmas Day.
After loading up the bike, and filling up with real gasoline, I headed out on Hwy10. Was a wet ride. Often a very wet ride. And no breakfast.
So when this NASA Science Center hove into view, I pulled in. Not Cape Kennedy, but nice.
And hot food. Nice person, Yolanda, on duty. Catfish was nice. Coffee machine broken though.
Decided against the bus-trip to see where NASA, Rolls-Royce and others test their engines. No testing taking place today. Would have been nice to see the flames, and hear the sound 🙂
Back outside and the rain had lessened. But I soon caught up with it. And not even riding fast. Traffic moving well, but lots of police.
Wondered why. Then saw a couple of accidents, but luckily the huge tail-back was on the other side of Hwy10.
And there were a few other bikers out there. So I am not the only daft one 🙂
Close to Mobile, became time to fill up. Found Zippy Mart, that had pure gasoline, and a gentleman who used to live at Finch&Bathurst in Toronto!!! Pointed me to Cuisine Of India, where I over-indulged in tandoori.
Found a cheap motel nearby and unpacked my kit to dry out.
And at close of day, please join me with some Ukrainian Christmas carols, verses, and songs, by clicking here
Merry Christmas to you Lube.
