Day 273
I had a lovely evening ride today, though it was very windy and consequently difficult to hear my chinese lesson - but it is satisfying to be doing another activity at the same time. I just took my small moleskine and a pencil. I don't know the name of this sort of eucalypt which sheds bark in such a profuse and messy manner, nor of another eucalypt which had this beautiful text 'etched' into it, though it was me that put in into rows. 17 km cycle

It's called the Pitman (shorthand) gum tree. Haha. Very interesting.

There is a scribbly gum and usually the mountain gums shed bark like that, but i dont know their latin names. Love the fun drawings.
