empty streets

September 20, 2011

this week, Copenhagen is hosting the 2011 UCI Road World Championships (a massive bike race).  this means that most of the center city’s roads are totally blocked off to buses, cars, and most bicycles.  it’s annoying because it has totally messed up my commute to class, but at the same time it’s pretty cool to have such a big event here.

I think there’s something so romantic about having empty streets, too.  pop-up cafés abound and the streets feel a lot cozier without the hustle and bustle of 24/7 traffic.
