@TobbeThis house that one can rent, do you know how much it costs and where one can rent it?

You have a lot of Germans there, haven't you? :D

Maybe I'll visit this year. Searching for a vacation place for a long weekend at the moment.

Information about who to contact, auf Deutsch, in PM :)  But nothing will be cheaper than staying at my place ;)

Good one, Arkania. This is a lot harder than I initially thought. I'm so far behind in points that I need to vlog about something...why did I sign up for this?

Task #1: Borrow a book from the library, finish it during the week.

 

I'd like to post this right now so I don't have to post it later. I checked this book out on Sunday (1/6) and I burned through 132 pages out of 210 in about 3 hours. I loved it and I'm going to finish it soon. It's about a man that moves to Puerto Rico with his wife because she was relocated because of work. The man wants to go kite surfing on the beach but sees a dog that's almost dead on the beach. He brings it back to life and soon he has over 70 dogs he takes care of on the Puerto Rico beach because they have no homes. The men and women and high class resort hotels are all trying to kill the dogs because they're bad for business but when this man starts to take care of the dogs and show them love, then the natives and gangs start to target and try to kill him. The man joins up with others and begins to find homes for some of the dogs so they can be shipped to the United States. That's as far as I've gotten so far but like I said, I'm going to finish it.

Since this is such a long running challenge I think it's going to be more important to stay with it and be consistent with completing the tasks every week than doing a sprint in the beginning :)

Sounds like a nice book :)  Let us know when you finish it and you'll get points for the completed task! (If you do it within a week)

Did a quick google research about what (free) video editing program to use, and ended up choosing OpenShot. It was very easy to work with, so I can recommend it to anyone else who doesn't yet already have a favorite

Thank you for the suggestion.  I want to learn how to edit my videos so I was doing some initial research on editing tools, but have not decided yet.

And, finally, here's the actual vlog!

Holy crap, you have no neighbors!!!  You could literally go weeks without seeing another person...  I cannot even imagine what that would be like.  You will see what the opposite situation is like when I upload my vlog :P

And since I work 100% from home I do live a pretty isolated life during the weeks. But I love it :) And we have a pretty active social life on the weekend :)

Ok, change of plans. Actually I wanted to vlog about my task for this week and talk about Ghee and stuff.
But I don't think I will use it this week since there is a lot of other stuff to cook before the Kitchari.

BUT I was at the burger restaurant for lunch and they had yuca fries. (I didn't want to vlog while eating there ;)).

And because I have very little time for everything this week, there will just be a picture and some text (so @Rubik'sCat time for you to rise and shine :D )

IMG_20190109_121020_1.thumb.jpg.feb8ba4c48f32c468cd9099c50ac37a3.jpg

 

As you can see, a great burger (boar patty with rosemary mushrooms, parmesan, cheddar, red onions, cranberry-chili-mayonnaise) and the yuca/maniok fries.

Never have eaten them before. They taste like.... nothing :D Very thick crust so they are very crispy and inside it's like flavourless fibrous mashed potatoes. They were very filling so I was more than full after half the poortion I would have in normal fries. Not sure if I would choose them again because of their flavourlessness (word?!).

That sounds like the sweet potato fries they have here.  They look good, but are actually really, really bland.

 

That burger looks boss, tho...

I didn't know about ghee until after I learned about it here at NF :)

Had to google what that was. Immediately recognized it when I saw it though. I call it "cassava". 

 

I've eaten it boiled, with caramelized onions and garlic butter :)

We also dipped fried plantains in the same garlic butter Yummy Had it on a food tasting tour in Miami, FL in a Cuban restaurant :)

Of course :)  

 

(To be honest, my comment above about #51 was mostly a note to myself to know what task number you completed :))

As much as I hate to admit it, a vlog will actually help me with part of my challenge.
I want to post videos on my instagram blog but it makes me so nervous. Perhaps this will be good practice.

Go for it! Know that this is a safe place :) I was nervous too, but now it doesn't feel so bad anymore Strong

I finally got my PVP filmed and uploaded.  Internet was really slow so it took me more than 5 hours to get it uploaded.  Someday I will learn how to edit videos, but in the meantime you guys are stuck just listening to my stream of consciousness rambling.  I was actually expecting the park to be a lot more crowded so you all could get a feel for what it is normally like here, but for some reason today the park was almost deserted.  Anyway, I hope you like seeing what the park is like where I usually go to work out.

@WhiteGhost You, sir, are amazing! The camera angle, the volume and tone of your voice, it was perfect. Thanks for the tour!

 

Are you living in Beijing right now or is it some kind of long holiday trip? You seem really at ease, wandering around filming yourself among all these people, training in the open... congrats!

I agree with Elastigirl! We don't have anything like that where I live. Nice to see all those older-looking people out moving. Looks so healthy :)  Are those payed classes, or can anyone join who feels like it?
