I am blogging from the Condo Gardens Leuven over their "free" wifi. It is incredibly slow. I could shell out five euros and get a connection that is "8 times faster", but I think that would only take me to very slow and I'd be feeling annoyed about paying the money.
Leuven is a charming Medieval town in Belgium. I've been here for about 36 hours, but most of that has been spent sleeping. Still, I've taken 139 photos. Many of bicycles.
This is because there are a lot of them and they're different from what I see in Ottawa.
Almost all of the Leuven bicylces:
- are both old and old-fashioned;
- are 1-speed or 3-speed; and
- have dynamo-powered headlights and lots of reflectors.
Many have charming paint jobs.
