  • lose interest or become bored with something or somebody; "I'm so tired of your mother and her complaints about my food"
  • Cause to feel in need of rest or sleep; weary
  • hoop that covers a wheel; "automobile tires are usually made of rubber and filled with compressed air"
  • Become in need of rest or sleep; grow weary
  • Lose interest in; become bored with
  • exhaust or get tired through overuse or great strain or stress; "We wore ourselves out on this hike"

Castelgrande at Dusk
Castelgrande at Dusk
On Friday, June 25, day 9 of our bicycle tour of the Alps, we rode from Airolo to Bellinzona, 37.9 miles. It was an easy ride, mostly downhill through Valle Leventina, roughly following the Ticino River. Phil was feeling somewhat sick, and I started to get a slight sore throat, both most likely due to dry air at Grimsel Pass two nights earlier. Upon reaching Bellinzona, we stopped briefly at a bike store so Piaw could get a replacement spare tire and replacement tubes. Phil also picked up a pair of SKS Raceblade fenders in case of future rain -- both Cynthia and I already had these fenders on our bikes, and they served us well earlier in the trip when we were riding from Munich to Austria. We checked into a hotel, Garni Moderno, fairly early in the afternoon, and then proceeded to explore the town on foot. Cynthia and I ended up wandering off on our own, first stopping to get a sandwich at a grocery store, then later finding a bookstore, where we bought a bicycling map of Switzerland, and finally ending up at an Italian restaurant, where we enjoyed a nice dinner along with a half a liter of wine. We discovered that a half liter -- two thirds of a normal bottle -- is a perfect amount of wine for two people. Half a bottle always seems like just a glass and a half apiece, really only enough for a taste, while a whole bottle often makes us more drunk than we'd like. The half liter size fits nicely in the middle, enough for a good time, but not enough to make us stupid. After dinner, we made our way back to our hotel and watched the sunset from our balcony. Also visible from our balcony, atop a rocky hill in the middle of town, was the Castelgrande. Shortly after sunset, lights turned on to light up the castle, and eventually the sky dimmed to a deep, rich blue. I used a Pedco UltraPod II to hold my camera steady on the railing of our balcony while I grabbed several images during the changing light. Panasonic GF1, 20mm pancake, 2.5 s at f/8, ISO 100. The image was a bit off-angle, so I used Hugin to straighten the verticals and remove the perspective distortion.
