empty streets

this week, Copenhagen is hosting the 2011 UCI Road World Championships (a massive bike race). ย this means that most of the center city's roads are totally blocked off to buses, cars, and most bicycles. ย 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. ย pop-up cafรฉs abound and the streets feel a lot cozier without the hustle and bustle of 24/7 traffic.
