Many cities have taken to organising a car-free day once a year. They close the streets to private traffic, leaving the city free for public transport, cyclists, and pedestrians.
Here’s a nice non-alcoholic beverage I came up with the other day. I made it out of what I had to hand, and it turned out very well. I don’t know whether it’s really original or not, but it has a refreshing, delicate flavour.
I’ve spent the weekend at the Yahoo!/BBC-organised Hack Day at Alexandra Palace in London. It was interesting, fun, tiring, and occasionally frustrating, but generally good. I’ve no idea what other people actually did, because I fell asleep out of exhaustion during the presentations on Sunday afternoon!
I spent the week before last in County Galway in the west of Ireland. I rented a car and spent five days in Connemara and its surounding areas, staying in B&Bs and exploring a very beautiful and peaceful part of the world on my own.
