Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

This caught my eye today, sitting outside the office for a break. I was amazed to see that the happy-no-worry-kid was riding a beautifully designed bike :) I’d sure love to see more smart design like this in Bucharest every day.




Lacul Morii Island

May 6, 2007, 1:58 AM

Because the Rock’n Coke festival will be held on the Lacul Morii Island (Mill’s Lake Island), I took my bike today to go and have a look. Well, it’s a small island, so I wonder how they’ll organize everything. Maybe they’ll use the nearby field as well, since the island itself is just too small.

Another problem is that people do drink at these events, right ? I wonder if they’ll bring David Hasselhoff to pick up winos/beeros from the water :P

Here’s a view from the bridge that gets you to the island (click to enlarge):

On the (steel) road

I love those hills that spread through all Transilvanian landscape. If I miss something from my time living in Cluj it’s definitely the ability to look almost anywhere at the city’s skyline and see the surrounding hills, knowing that at anytime I can get my bike and go riding through the forests and bumpy roads. Nowadays Bucharest’s urban jungle will have to do…

Love'em hills

In the meanwhile, Cluj is changing (finally, after 12 years of beeing held back by its previous mayor Funar). The center of the city is mostly ditches, but by the autumn it will have a completly new Eroilor Street. The left side in this following picture will be a huge sidewalk, with statues, fountains and (I hope) lots of trees.

Coming soon..

Noi vrem pamant

It says: “Moon land for sale”

Seen in Tineretului, Bucharest. A friend told me this car is moving from place to place in the city. Great advertising, right ? :P Also very nice comparison with my previous post ;)
