Tracks and Tracks

Kincaid Bluff Trail, March 2014

There are tracks and tracks and tracks and tracks and tracks and tracks and tracks, all over the world.

Sung as a round. Second person begins when first person sings: “There are tracks and tracks…”.

Song almost never ends.

Today Nick told me that he doesn’t know what he looks like when he rides a bike, but I do. I’ve been hiding some pictures on my camera for months. Nick is still smiling and wearing the same shirt. I’m not sure if he’s taken a proper shower all summer.

His name in Ukrainian is Mykola.

Polonina flipbook, starring Mr. Polish

We ride the mountains of western ukraine. All the red shrubs are low bush blueberries sporting their fall colors– huge and sweet. The man in red is Przemek. Over the weeks we’ve traveled with him, he’s developed a character called Mr. Polish. It started because the locals couldn’t remember his name and referred to him as pan polska (polish man). Przemek is excellent at english and speaks nearly accent-free. He’s easy-going, bright and kind– a great guy to travel with. Mr. Polish speaks with a thick polish accent and a cunning wit. He’s arrogant and hilarious and we all enjoy him a whole lot.
