here’s an odd little tidbit…

Qatar has put in an official bid to host the Prologue of the 2014 Tour de France.

kind of stretches the definition of “France,” doesn’t it?

i realize that the Tour often starts in other countries than France – but they’ve always been European countries that bordered France… this just seems odd.

but hey, why not?

quote of the day:

“What an odd thing tourism is. You fly off to a strange land, eagerly abandoning all the comforts of home, and then expend vast quantities of time and money in a largely futile attempt to recapture the comforts that you wouldn’t have lost if you hadn’t left home in the first place.” – Bill Bryson
