Reflections Of Amsterdam - Mobile Home

Unedited mobile phone cam shot of buildings, reflected on a car in Amsterdam. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

Cars can be useful in some situations (I have not encountered such a situation in manymany years, but maybe somebody else has :) and for many car-owners they are a little home away from home, they keep their favorite music in there and sometimes even food, drinks and other items that make it bearable to spend considerable periods of time trapped in small metal cages, that more and more often just stand still in the giant waiting line we call modern traffic (killing the planet with their thirst for natural resources), while trying to get from A to B as quickly as possible, usually achieving the opposite while doing so...needless to say that I outbike any car in the city of Amsterdam because Bikey can go through any street, in any direction and if I don't pay attention, through any color of traffic-light, so the idea of paying thousands of euros each year to put a slowly moving steel box around myself completely eludes me, but maybe I'm too simple to get it, haha ;-D

To my fellow Amsterdammers who think that they depend on a car, think again, often you'll go to places where you could easily go with the Public Transport System (*shudder*, OK, not the best idea I've had today ;), walk or bike to, in less time and for a fraction of the cost, training your leg muscles, making you more attractive and fit and saving the planet while doing so ;-P

Have a good start into the new week!

P.s. If you're tired of my whining about cars and you're considering to sell it and exchange it for a plane, watch this movie first, haha ;-P
