A relatively short day today, to the town of Princeton, NJ. For those who don’t know, this is a famous university town, with many great minds having lived here. One of the best known, Albert Einstein, lived his last twenty years in Princeton, after fleeing Nazi Germany in the mid 1930s.

We are very appreciative to be staying with Craig, a member of the Tour de Bois, and his wife Julie and daughter Zoe. They have a great place, not too far from Einstein’s house. I last saw Craig two years ago, after we’d cycled from Adelaide to Mount Gambier. That trip included two memorable nights spent in the Barossa Valley, sampling some very fine reds.

Tomorrow I start heading toward NYC.
