Some reflections and sunsets from the big cities

We happened to be zigzagging in Western Europe for a few weeks. Actually, hopping around the big (and not so big) cities. Hitchhiking in between. Working in between. Seeing friends meanwhile.

Big cities are tiring.

But then.

In Paris I cycle around with city bikes to avoid busy metro stations. While cars fly past I stare at those parked around there. Not that I’m interested in cars. But in these:

I stare at the water surfaces

Sunsets are perfect for catching silhouettes of cyclists over the bridge in Amsterdam,

and lurking behind the light pole in Berlin to catch the dreamy mood of passers-by.

And then there’re all the untold stories about trees full of green parrots, powerful waterfalls and wonderful people. More city randomness here
