Copenhagen pigeons


We went to the center of Copenhagen today, to meet some friends in front of the City Hall. While we were waiting, wedding guests came out from the City Hall in great numbers. Everyone very happy, including the pigeons that are having a feast at every wedding. (Eating the rice, you know)

The City Hall pigeons (rådhusduer) are been taking care of, by the goverment, though some politicians have tried to stop that tradition. Newspaper article here.

    It is very common to use the bike, most people have one. Small children start biking as soon as their parents have time to borrow or buy one. My mother in law is 88, she is still biking. There are bicycle path along most streets and it is not popular to use the car for short distances,-even many people do it. We are talking very much about the CO2 problem.

    Being originally born and raised in Denver, Colorado, there are plenty of sunny days in mid-winter where the the streets are dry even though there is un-melted snow on the lawn areas. Bicycling can take place without having mud and water slung on you by the wheels and there is even the chance of breaking a sweat if your bike ride is a long one and you are over-dressed. This is also ideal weather for a good walk with extra care taken to not put on too many layers of clothing. There are plenty of good opportunities to bicycle in Copenhagen and other places during the winter without the cold temperatures being any kind of real hindrance.
