Yesterday a man interviewing me about Copenhagen said: “I know it is a stretch, but could you say something positive...”. I laughed so hard because I get it: I do rattle cages, and point out what needs to be fixed. But that is only because I love Copenhagen so much, you get that, right? Anyway, he made me think about how I get my message across.
It has been raining more or less non stop for days, and outdoor activities are kept to a minimum, until it passes. You know like in June. As I was headed towards the city centre, I was trying to come up with the one image that would convey what I love so much about living in Copenhagen. My bike was parked alongside of me, and I was crouching over a nice big water mirror, when she passed me: Supermom. With a pink cape and all.
Watermirrors be damned, she was the one. The embodiment of what I love so much about this city: the endurance, biking through all kinds of weather, Supermom pushing two kids on a red bike in a pink cape. I tried to get a better shot.
But you have to consider that I was up against superpowers.
