Bikes...

Unedited mobile phone cam shot of a snowed-in bike in Amsterdam. Taken with my C905 mobile phone. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

 

Since last week unbelievable amounts of snow fell down on the best city in the world and made everything look pretty and romantic...unfortunately it also brought any kind of traffic to a grinding halt and those of us that were brave enough to travel by bike, found their beloved steel horses looking like this when they tried to ride home. I was smart/stoopid enough to take the tram, and it took me over 2 hours to get home Friday night, because I ended up with this hysterical tram-driver lady who kept making announcements over the communication system that she didn't know what to do anymore, she couldn't go on like this and that we should all better get off and try our luck with other kinds of transportation, and then she kicked us out of the tram. Needless to say that the passengers weren't too charmed by her mental breakdown, but luckily a few minutes later another tram showed up, steered by a calm, friendly and very professional dude who safely brought us all home, it still took him a long time and many detours from the regular route, but he did it. When I got off, I complimented him on his excellent tram-driving skills and he was very excited and overjoyed to hear that his performance was appreciated, happy faces all around :))

 

I'm not sure if I'll take the tram or the bike today, have to check the weather-report, lol :)
