pikkuinen: (librarian)
While most of you were watching the Royal Wedding (oh dear, I am not the least bit sorry I missed it...) I spent my afternoon in a wheelchair. No worries, I didn't hurt myself or anything :)

A few weeks ago we were divided in groups in one of my seminars and we have to do a project in those groups. The topic of my group is 'accessibility for the handicapped' (Barrierefreiheit in German) and we thought the best way to approach the topic was trying to understand the everyday problems of handicapped people, especially people in wheelchairs.
So we took our cameras, rented out a wheelchair (we didn't even have to pay for it because the woman renting them out was thrilled) and off we went through the city.

And, to be honest, we found a lot of problems. Especially in the two libraries downtown... which made us all a bit sad.

Have some pictures )

Being with two guys all day felt awkward, but at least both of them are nice. Still... weird feeling.
