My family's commutes

Wow, it's been forever since I wrote anything here. I'm backlogged on some ideas for this blog, but I wanted to take a quick piece of cyberspace to congratulate my family members for ditching their cars when it comes to commuting.

My brother, an Internet executive gave me the news at dinner last Thursday night. As we speak his Facebook page proudly declares that he's returning to being a bike commuter...take that terrorists!

Two of my cousins, Ben Brisson and Edison Parzanese are living together in Boston this summer but are leaving the car back with their mother. Ben is a jet pilot and will be taking transit to the airport. Edison, a star lacrosse player at Holy Cross, is interning with a financial firm.

So take that car culture, my family is doing it's best to walk the walk.

I've been biking into work ever since the weather turned from being completely awful. It's wonderful to get in the exercise. While people claim the roads here in Pittsburgh are crazy (they aren't-at least when it comes to drivers actually hitting you) it's nothing compared to biking in Qatar, which really would have been close to suicide.

Also, I was just thinking last night that I hadn't seen a post from you in a while.

Oh, and on a more somber note:

Hey Roman, where do you live and where do you work in Pitt? How long a ride is it?
