Copenhagen main station

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

I don't want to miss my flight again

So I made a trial run to CPH, and afterwards planted the rose and snapped some of my good neighbours in Brumleby - a photoset on Flickr


great excitement

a test METRO train pulling into the new airport station at CPH
it has no driver so the software is being tested until 28 Septemeber 2007

Metro - Næste station Lufthavnen: "nder prøvekørsler på Metroens 3. etape - strækningen fra Lergravsparken til Københavns Lufthavn, der åbner 28. september - kan det forekomme, at der på informationstavlerne og på tog står Lufthavnen i stedet for Lergravparken. Ligeledes kan der være højtalerudkald om Lufthavnen i stedet for Lergravsparken. Årsagen er, at softwaren på hele Metrosystemet – det vil sige både den nye strækning og den eksisterende Metro - bliver testet. Informationssystemet og det system, der bestemmer togets destination, er integrerede og kan ikke kobles fra hinanden under en realistisk test."

packing, shopping and clearing up, and a slug laying eggs - a photoset on Flickr

DSC00887 first empty the suitcase

yes before you pack you need to completely unpack,
I have been living out of suitcases for about 62 years

boarding schools, engineering college, army , travelling musician .. and as a european.

When you pack, you pack from the outside inwards - everthing must touch an outside edge of the case - wisdom from my aunty Kitty - and you get more in.
