Free Water Anyone?

Caroline&Karoline

Free Water!

This is Caroline and Karoline. Two university college students. Caroline is a future economist, she will graduate in December. Her friend Karoline is studying law and has a few years left in school before she can title herself a jurist. I spotted their unusual bicycles in Handen on Thursday and decided to check out what was going on. The girls work extra for Manpower, and on this occasion that meant working for City Gross, which is a grocery chain. When I met them they were giving away water bottles, not a bad idea on a sunny summer day. And true to her education the future jurist Karoline asked me if I knew everything about The Personal Data Act.

You want to be careful, Steffe, Karolina might be contacting you after she graduates to demand compensation for mentioning her name on your web site, he he.

I never run into free water bottles like that when I need some! Your timing was better. Unusual bikes!! Cute svenksa flickor!

Kool and cool photos - why the free water? Here is a recent economic quote: In Eat The Rich, P.J.O’Rourke described economics as "an entire scientific discipline of not knowing what you’re talking about." One can only quibble with the word "scientific".

Two lovely students at work on a sunny day. . .I wish that were my office! (and I didn't know Manpower was an international agency!) The Dutch Bike Company here sells a passenger model that is similar to this, but I'm wondering how that front wheel is directed in this design.

You know, Steffe, if you keep meeing all these interesting people you come upon, there will be no strangers left in a very short time. You will know EVERYONE. :-)

Lovely ladies working peddling their wares and giving them away. Amazing.

Steffe said...

That's my secret plan Kim!

And the girls told me that the bike was a bit hard to manoeuvre which Karoline then proved with a little accident.

It was a marketing campaign for the grocery store Peter. On the water bottle there was a bunch of discount coupons.

I use the standard template Minima but have changed the HTML a bit.

You never know Bill. All Swedish girls are cute Leif, but you already knew that.

I can see through your blog you like girls photography. The answer to your question about the face of dancing girls is online on : http://chateau-gontier-daily-photo.blogspot.com/
