Anyhow, what did I learn during my fourth day in Copenhagen:
- It is just like Lubbock. It is incredibly flat and incredibly windy at time. But otherwise not so much unless you can imagine the bikes here to be the equivalent of Chevy Suburbans.
- It is just like the Island on Lost, as it spontaneously rains even when it is sunny and then stops immediately, almost as if John Locke was anticipating it all.
- Last year, I noted that Paris, Berlin and London vary in how much they trust their citizens to pay for the metro/train. Paris--very untrusting--with very difficult obstacles to surmount if you don't pay. Berlin--complete trust with the possibility of an inspection. Copenhagen--same as Berlin.
- Train was also funky in that an entire car (or more) was dedicated to bikers and their bikes, with stands built in. The trains also have "quiet" zones and anti-quiet zones (wifi). Interestingly, you will find less English in the metro/train system in Copenhagen than in the cities I experienced last year. They make up for it by using English in the names and advertisements of their shoppes. The pic here is for boots and shoes, which are semi-underwater here.
- Truthers are even here. Ug. Right outside the Parliament.
