longer, lighter, later
the days are so much longer now — after studio ends at 17:00, i have nearly 3 whole hours to sit and read at a park, before i have to hop from sunspot to sunspot to escape the creeping evening shadows.
another reason (and probably most importantly) why i adore copenhagen 1 googolplex times more now than i did before the three-week spring break: Elijah Lake.
Elijah Lake is my new darling on two wheels from Baisikeli [= bicycle in swahili; ‘the best bike rental for the world’, ‘rent a bike and help us send bikes to Africa’] — he is 11 days old, shiny black with a single piece of green tape, basketless, and beautiful. my relationship with Elijah has been absolutely amazing so far, and i don’t see the honeymoon period ending anytime soon.
Copenhagen is lovingly known as the cycling capital of the world. ogsa, Roger named his bike Ursula so I think Elijah Lake is pretty good, comparatively.
several memorable trips over the virginal week:
- biking to school every morning and breathing in a gallon of freshness everytime the lakes come into view
- biking to frederiksberg plads, walking around copenhagen business school + the faculty of life sciences at univ of copenhagen, sniffing and learning about trees, and searching for that elusive 2 hot dogs for 24 kroner deal at 7-11
- biking past the 16 football fields in Amager [yet another development by B.I.G.] on the way to the beach at Amager Strand for a picnic on thursday, and hiding among the sand dunes for shelter
- biking to the boardwalk on Islands Brygge on friday and, yes, having another picnic.
