Danish Trike

This is the first photo in my ongoing series on Lonely Rusty Tricycles. I found this classic beauty in Christiania, the free, self-governing region of Copenhagen. Danes are very organized, even in Christiania and especially about riding and parking their wheels, a fact that gave this charger a certain rebelliousness when I first saw it standing all alone in the center of a big otherwise-clear courtyard. As I got closer I saw how rusted it was and I imagined that it had been frozen there for years, unridden and unremembered, quiet.

But I'm sure that just as I was turning the corner out of sight some jam-faced little Danish boy or girl was running out after lunch to re-mount their glorious red tricycle, and set off on an afternoon of new and amazing toddler adventures!
