The only sport Jr. plays these days are on his computer One thing I hate in US is sports being very competitive for teenagers instead of fun and exercise in middle and high schools. He was in his middle school track and field team and there was a long story

I doubt. Look at Ancic. Soda had the severe case, unlike Fed or Pospisil

I miss him. It's sad.

On another note, the one bad thing about Rafa being back is that GMSNadal is back to his insufferable self. Good lord.

Mongolia, I will probably be there for 8 days or so, I only need a couple in Ulaanbaatar, so I have time for the Desert, I want to stay in those tents, you know?

As for the book, I am praying some memeber of my family is going to offer me War and Peace for my Bday and I will just read it during the trip. I guess it's the ideal time to do it.

On my Lonely Planet Guide, at some point when describing the border between Russia and Mongolia and the procedures they say something like "if you haven't had time to finish War and Peace by the time you arrive at the border, relax, you'll have plenty of time while waiting to cross it". It can take up to 11 hours
Better have it on a tablet. It's a heavy book. Or paperback and tear out pages as you go. I did that when backpacking. It's an easy read. It's very quick paced or at least it was for me. I've read it twice. Maybe three times, but not sure.

Ming tombs!! wouldn't it be fun to tour the entire wall? Not just the big tourist spots?

Swedish tennis has sadly gone to pot. I miss Swedish tennis players. I used to always have a few as favorites. I remember Robin as an up and coming player at 19. I suppose he still has hopes, but at his age and the length of time away, it doesn't look good.

GSMNadal is awesome.

It takes courage to fly the banners for Nadal on GM.

Of course! Very female nickname. Besides his whole attitude, just made me think he was a very fierce, determined, slightly arrogant in a good way woman. I am totally disappointed.

Good point, it's a heavy book. I'll need to figure it out.

The entire wall would be nice but it would take a long time!! I want to take a trekking tour. Like a 3 day thing, walking along the wall and camping!

Since I am a delusional fedtard and a fake Nadal fan, I think I am in a better position to judge.

Would it further disappoint you that Snowwy is a Mathematician, Raquel?

I never thought about walking the whole Great Wall, too many ghosts IMO. And you really have to rough it out. Many parts had crumbled and not stable. Plus, it's really steep I was out of breath even when I walked for a small distance while I was young, around Nole's age
