An October fest

Okay. October. Looking back it has been a pretty rewarding month. Starting with the bunker show, and the collaborative effort to save the trees. Since the swings were mounted, the bunkers have been crowded with children and young families, the bridge corners have never been more utilised. The recommendation from the local councils on whether to let live or demolish must be in by the end of this month. Fingers crossed.

Still plenty of room left for the lovers.

The Test Tubes on the bridge are bursting at the seams, sometimes even spilling over with cups, and still up and running, although the experiment was supposed to be evaluated by the end of September. Does that mean that the trial period is prolonged? It is a guessing game. No matter what, riding past them daily makes me feel ridiculously good inside.

The Copenhageners are learning fast, practically begging they city to keep up with them.

In other news, these days mark the last for the free city bikes, with no immediate plans for an upgrade. It doesn't make sense to retire a free bike program in a city that promotes itself as bike friendly. Even if they were heavy to push and hard to come by (give people something for free, and they will treat it like it is worthless, ugh). The reason for terminating the program, was a budget too tight to accommodate bikes for tourists, prioritising widening more bike lanes. But surely there is room for the bikes in the tourist budget? I can't think of a better PR stunt for the city of Copenhagen. Or an equal PR nightmare, shutting them down. Sigh. 

Only in my neighborhood will you find a demonstration calling to overturn the government:

Bless them for giving a damn!

    1. Haha Carole, I am sure I have stepped on too many toes and bruised too many egoes (without even trying) by now for that to happen. Maybe we can invent a new title for me? That would be so funny. :D
