Bike Wall







Welcome to the bicycles of Charlottesville! This mural was painted on a large curved wall beside a busy highway. It was painted by four artists and several volunteers, and it took four days. I see something different each time we pass it.

 “Anyone who can read this writing on the wall and tell me what it means will be famous and rich—purple robe, the great gold chain—and be third-in-command in the kingdom.”

I like this a lot, better than some of the graffiti we have here.
As for Rowan and legs akimbo, yes wouldn't it be lovely if we were a supple as the cats.

Hi Ginny, to answer your question on white coffee - Ipoh ‘white’ coffee is a popular coffee drink which originated from Ipoh in the state of Perak, Malaysia. The traditional black coffee beans are roasted with palm oil margarine, and the resulting coffee is served with condensed milk and the result is "white coffee".
