Tested For You: Yoga (2)

Tested For You: Yoga (1)

I am not too flexible but pretty calm anyway, so I didn’t really feel the need to add Yoga to my life. But by a… eh… misunderstanding I won finagled some Yoga lessons, okay, fine? I am really absolutely not flexible – but very good at relaxing.

Tested For You: Kayaking (3)

(Kayaking) Learning target: kayakers are hard… “We kayak all year long, except the river is frozen all over.” …picture-book Thuringians*. “And we have barbecues for lunch! When it’s freezing we put tin foil on our steaks so they don’t get icy on top while they’re roasted from below.” (*actually not from Thuringia)
