    4/2/24 SERUM is used in health science studies. We had a rainy adventure to find the new NSF location. Lots of laughs. Found some fun public art to add to the Alexandria Art Ride too.

    4/1/24 FROND no joke, the frond I found was near the end of the memorial ride in the tile art outside La Pirouette cafe (which I have always wanted to try). The entire art piece was in a public art entry of mine during FS several years ago.

    3/31/24 TABOO was a tough one, but it is truly in bad taste and should be banned (i.e. taboo) when the power company has wires looking like this in otherwise beautiful neighborhoods. Looked worse in real life than in my photo.

    @serdar @cvcalhoun @nadine @aaronbikes I am back on the bike and will continue to play. Keeps me on my Wordle game and allows me serenity when I ride alone to have something to find. I likely will keep searching for art and flags too, because my brain won’t stop. Happy Easter if that’s in your celebration cadre. -Jenn

    3.18-24 SPELT I entertained myself by creating a route I called “Spelt Tour” of embassies, consulates, and cultural centers of countries associated with the Ancient spelt grain.

    In my early a.m. research, I learned that the oldest known spelt came from Mesopotamia (now Iraq). There was also early evidence of spelt in Syria with much later discoveries and production in Poland and Germany and N Spain cultivars.

    I designed a route that started with the Iraq Embassy and then Germany in Foxhall-Reservoir Rd areas. I then went up by National Cathedral to the Polish Consulate and Embassy (the oldest Embassy in service).  I biked past the Syrian Embassy but missed it because I was fascinated with the Macedonia Embassy.

    Last stop before a quick tour of the cherry blossoms was supposed to be the American Wheat Growers Association but I missed the turn and had to use the restroom so bad that I couldn’t backtrack.

    At the Polish Consulate, an employee at the gate thought I was so strange for taking a picture of the bldg when I tried to explain why I was taking a picture there. She did not know of “spelt.”

    I took lots of pictures but my favorite is of the old Polish Embassy.

    The route is public on RWGPS and will hopefully have the highlights and POIs added one day.

Today I had many flags on my self-designed “Spelt Tour” of embassies, consulates, and cultural centers of countries associated with the Ancient spelt grain. Going with…Germany
