Out this week
(I got COVID)
COVID-19 has finally come for me. I am feeling fine except for a slight cough, but this test result makes it so I can not go into Copenhagen to see the Tour de France tomorrow. It is a shame, I fondly remember watching the race through the Lance years when it was broadcast on OLN in the United States. Seeing the Tour in person and experiencing the street festival that Copenhagen is putting on for the Grand Départ felt like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Short of a miracle negative test in the morning, I will be watching it from home and trying to get well again. So, probably no post this week. Sorry!
Copenhagen has gone all out for the Grand Départ. It feels like every third building in the city center has yellow banners up vying for a share of the cheap global advertising from being featured on the broadcast. In some places, there are small yellow, polka dotted, green, and white flags above the street. Trees along the streets are covered in yellow fabric. From what I have seen, tomorrow will be magical.
