Simply Jonathan

Two Cultures

I was in New York in February, where it was unseasonably warm. So warm that you could see stuff like this in Prospect Park:

A sign that reads 'Danger: Thin Ice' in front of a completely non-frozen lake
Thin ice indeed

Yesterday I was out walking around the lake Damhussøen in my native Copenhagen. Here it is unseasonably cold for March (although not in the what-the-fuck-it’s-68°f-in-New-York-in-February category), and the lake is completely frozen:

A completely frozen lake, complete with a tree branch comfortably nestled on it; no signposts

But in Denmark, you’re on your own. To be fair, based on tracks we saw, it seems that people could actually walk on Damhussøen, though I doubt it’s something anyone would recommend.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
