Greetings from Al Parvez (unplugged)!

Sorry for the long silence, I've been really busy with a lot of meetings and we're registering a lot of good people every week. Orders are coming in almost daily and I just received new orders in the IT, Luxury Brand and Finance industries today. So, feel free to send me your resume in confidence and I will see what type of opportunties may be open to you. It is always a pleasure to have contact with new people and old "friends of Interplace".

I was getting bored with weight training and decided to buy a mountain bike and go cycling on the weekends. It's a great form of exercise and a fantastic way to see Tokyo from a new perspective. I am discovering new areas of Tokyo by cycling about four hours each day on the weekends going to various spots around town. I have lost weight and enjoying it so far. Although I had a close call with a van last Sunday near Hiroo and my arm hit the side view mirror but it was nothing serious.

I got this great mountain bike from the "Y's Bike Shop" in Akasaka, near Tameiki Sanno station at a great price. The staff, especially "Daisuke-san" was very professional, patient and gives excellent service. He can speak English well and recommended this Schwinn 19 inch mountain bike which has been serving me well for the past month.

I got this great helmet on Ebay for cycling, it's a Delta Force's helmet as seen in the movie "Blackhawk Down". I just like the styling and it offers much more protection than most cycling helmets I have seen. I recommend NIKE athletic wear for its "Dri fit" stretch properties and they last. Together with Crash Pad Shorts which offers great protection and shoes by Merril, you're all set for a day of cycling in the Metropolis. There are a lot of cycling clubs and groups in Japan so why not join one and meet nice people who share the same passion.

Will keep you up-to-date on my cycling adventures on future blogs.

Well, another exciting week for us lays ahead. I wish everyone a great and productive week!

Talk to you all soon!
Al
