Denmark Day 739

This photo (not mine) says it all about biking around in Copenhagen in the dead of winter, which has been colder than usual this year.

(Photo and quote credit: Hebster. "Alone. Or as alone as it is possible to be on Fredensbro on a sunday afternoon. Shot on a shit-cold second sunday in [February] 2010.")

Late evening the same Sunday this picture was taken, it's around -10 C (14 F), and I'm walking SE over the very same Fredensbro (this is one of the bridges over the Søerne—the lakes that form the western border of downtown København). Mildish 10 mph headwinds, not very challenging if you're just walking around (and your last place of residence was New Hampshire), but the air is, after all, coming off a frozen lake. When I'm about halfway across, I hear a young woman exclaim in accented English to her friend as they cycle past on my left, "This is NOT very wonderful...I'm killing my bike NOW!"

And IMRISL (rolling in the snow laughing).
