On the way to a wedding.

As I was walking back to my apartment on Saturday, I walked past a wedding party (sorry, no pictures of that).

About 25 minutes later, I was sitting at a sidewalk cafe, drinking a koffie verkeerd, when a group rode past on bicycles on the way to the wedding. I know they were going to the wedding because on of the men out front (who is cut out of the picture due to the digital camera delay) was wearing the same royal blue tie as the rest of the wedding party.

I found it remarkable that people in their fine dress would be riding bicyles. It really is considered a standard form of transporation here, not a sport.
