Photographer's Note

To continue with my series on Nantes, I chose this photo today in anticipation of the approaching summit of Copenhagen about Global warming!
I had kept this image in my picture box with the thought of adding it to Morac's theme: "Velib, Velo'v...". So today I found it appropriate to share it with you!
Different cities of Europe have adopted this way of helping people not to use their car wherever they go! You put a coin in the counter and you can have the bike for a certain amount of time, and leave it at any station in Nantes.
After an experiment of 2-3years, it would be nice to collect different opinions from people who have used it!
This station is also situated on the island of Nantes, and I took the photo, as we were coming back from our ride on the elephant (See my pic 119.)
The city has decided to call their bikes "Bicloo". "Biclou" is a slang word in French for "bike". They came into use in the spring of 2008, and I have had a chance of using them. Quite handy !
