Awfully clever, aren’t they those Danes [ — and Swedes?] The Øresund bridge. Have you seen it? Totes amazing!!! It snakes on for like, forever, and then, on the last stretch towards Copenhagen, bridge becomes tunnel. Whoa! All to ensure the safety of flights to and from the nearby airport. Thoughtful, aren’t they?

I like the DESIGN DEMOCRACY that is omnipresent on every street corner of Copenhagen. Its like its in their blood.

They look delightful, don’t they, sunbathing?
