Science Labs

I found this article on early science labs the other day and wanted to share some of the images here. I loved looking at the equipment and design in their workspace.

Det snöar inte så mycket. Jag kommer till dig.

Recently my father asked me, “So, are you into Björk?”

Answer: Yes.

Actually I’m increasingly in love with everything Scandinavian. Although it is not my culture, I feel like I’d fit in, being sort of blond and gloomy.

I just picked my bike, Caroline, up from the shop and she is like a brand new lady. She got a major tune up, some cleaning, a new seat, new handle bar tape, and a new bike rack. I’ll have to post photos soon!

I feel like I need to step up my game to match Caroline’s makeover. I always love photos of people looking fashionable and cycling. I recently discovered Bike Fancy, a bike fashion blog, based in Chicago. I can’t get enough!

I’m also finally in an office with a bike room. No more leaving Caroline out in the rain. The only other cyclist at work is from Denmark. I’ve noticed that Danish people love their bikes. Maybe it’s because motorists are more cautious towards them. Chicago motorists could use a few tips in that department.
