...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive.

  1. Hi. This was exactly where and how and why a young Chinese cyclist was killed by the driver of a building truck a few years ago – there was (and maybe still is) a ghost bike there in his memory.
