No Car Day in UB

Saturday was no car day in UB. All traffic was blocked on Peace Ave, Baga Toiruu, Seoul St and Sambuu / Beijing Streets. It was extraordinarily refreshing. Lots of people out today enjoying the easy walking, bike riding and roller blading. I wish they would have more days like this!

Selbe River Make Over

The Selbe River is getting a long awaited make over. The gully that runs north south is being redone with walking paths and public spaces. The project started a few weeks ago and will probably take a year or more to complete but progress is underway. The first area to be developed is the section between the US embassy and the Sky Shopping Mall. This should definitely add some life to an otherwise neglected part of the city.
