The Ladies Bar


Yesterday I have been in Amsterdam and spotted these girls drinking together, chatting and listening to some music. But what EXACTLY is that ? Photograph made, today I searched for some info in the net. And then before writing this post I remembered that years ago I had already seen such a thing - in movement - in Utrecht. They were a group of about 12 students mounted in huge bike on the streets. So much fun ! Check the site www.fietscafe.nl and click on "foto's" or clik here for a slide show while the link lasts.
Ontem quando fui dar um rolê em Amsterdam vi essas "aburridas" aí bebendo e batendo papo ao solzinho. Gente que é isso ? Fui fazer uma foto e busquei hoje a explicação na internet. Aí que me lembrei ter visto semelhante bicicleta em Utrecht, há anos atrás. A cidade tem muitos estudantes e eles estavam celebrando o final do ano letivo numa mega bike para 10 ou doze pessoas e tinha um maluquinho no meio conduzindo o treco. Essa rosinha e' uma variante do mesmo princípio. Só que para luluzinhas. De uma olhada em www.fietscafe.nl e clique em "foto's" ou se quiser ver um slide show clica aqui rapidinho enquanto o link durar.
Esses holandeses...

Very cute blog entry! I've seen these around as well in different cities, but I too have never had my camera ready to catch a photo in time. I'll definitely share this link to your blog with friends when I talk about it ;-)

Aren't these bike-cafés fun? I've never got on one, but I've seen them in Cologne earlier this year. Though there I think they were "beer-bikes" instead... I managed to get a couple of pictures... What I haven't been able to figure out is how you steer them...
