  • I’m American, so I’m taking today’s prompt (hygge) to mean things that give comfort.

  • Bridges. The under side of them, at least.

    Fun fact: the one on the right was kilometer zero for the Olympic road races a couple months ago. I cycled out to see the start of the men’s race. It was badass.
