HI Kris, i am back home and thank you very much for pushing my buttons these last days. I've send you and email too requesting your snail address.
I am very glad the raindancers were in Hungary and not in England though!!:)

Its a pity that in Budapest they canceled the critical mass bycicle marshing. I wanted to report about it on DP..but anyway..next time:)

Alex said...

Car free day... A wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing this experience with us. Wish they could do that here too. How long did it take you to go to work?

Denton said...

Car free day is an admirable idea. I can speak from personal experience that walking to work is great. At the same time I have to admit it took me sometime to adjust my mind set and not drive my car even though I live two blocks from work. PS: I like what you did with this photo. Shooting toward the rising sun added to the photo.

Great idea, nice photo! I don't drive, so every day is a no car day for me; OK, except when I ride into town with Ben, which is more than often.

the car free thingy did not work here when it was in Spore the last time. It only minimise some cars, but still lots of cars everywhere...

selana18 said...

Well done kris , you are our photoreporter in Hungary...
This campaign here it was working more than the past, as there was a big campaign and all the public transport was free.
I have to tell you the truth:
yesterday I took my car as my work is far away from home.
I hope that you will replace your sleep on the weekend.Have a nice weekend!
