Aarhus harbour

So I randomly managed to get the lap-top and the mobile, Blue-toothing with each other again. Still don’t really know what I did to fix it. Anyway, I took a snap of the view from my apartment balcony showing the harbour in Aarhus. The white ship that can be seen is the ferry to Odden on Zealand, which is the island that Copenhagen is on. Occasionally Danish war ships moor here along with regular merchant vessels. All very nautical. Actually I know nothing of the sea and ports, but I seam to be learning stuff as I watch the ships come and go.

Angry Blue Teeth!

My Blue tooth phone will no longer connect to my computer.

So after an hour of trying every option/setting on both the laptop and the phone, and setting them to discoverable etc. they both say the other does not exist. This means I have no way of uploading photos until I retrieve my camera from England. Don’t you just hate computers (and I work in I.T.!!)

The Bells!

I have a problem with my new apartment. Here is a short clip of the level crossing out side the building I live in. This bell ringing goes on randomly from 4:30 in the morning till midnight! So, that’s me waking up at 4:30 every single day. Unhappy.

Every day scene.

I don’t have a camera yet here in Aarhus, Denmark. Just my dodgy mobile phone camera, which will have to do for now. Also I don’t have a broadband connection, so I’m very limited on what I can post. I have a favourite cafe that does Wi-Fi so I get one hour to do everything I need to online. One hour is not enough! I’ll do a piece on the Danish cycling infrastructure when I’m more sorted out, but it’s far and away better than the UK. Bikes have right-of-way on roundabouts. Cars actually stop on the roundabout and let you trundle round to your desired turn off. Also bike lanes running along side a main road have right-of-way over traffic turning off/on the main road. A bike lane in the UK would have a row of dashes across it indicating that you should give way. Again, here cars actually stop and wait for you to pass by, before turning off the main road. Try that too often in Manchester and you’d get squashed.
Oh, hours up, must dash...

Danish art?

Spotted this ‘sculpture’ on the way back from the pub one night.
It is almost artistic.


No idea what they’re selling here. Those crazy Danes!
