Gult svar -- Yellow answer

     Her er så løsningen. Helt uden regndråber: To gule klippeautomater. De er længeslsfuldt savnet af Uglemor, der hver uge betaler alt for meget for at køre  bus på grund af det dumme rejsekort. Måske burde man overveje en smartfon, så kunne man da have klippekort på den ...Uglemor, du drømmer, prisen for en smartfon, dækkes ikke af de ekstraudgifter på et helt år!


Here's the solution to the yellow question. Two yellow things are outdated ticket validators. MotherOwl missis them much, and grumles every week over paying more for her bustrips to pick up Owlets from school, than what she did bevore those validators went out of business.MotherOwl has considered getting a smartphone for the ticket app. But  ... MotherOwl you're dreaming  ... a smartphone will cost you way more than you'll save on app tickets in a year.

  1. Uglemor,

    I'm not even sure what ticket validators are but I do like your photo. We can still buy paper bus and train tickets (though we have to get them from a machine), but the e-tag system is more popular. We wave the tag in front of a sensor at the train station and the money is taken directly from our bank accounts. I miss the old days when we gave real money to a man behind a ticket counter who then gave us a real ticket. Much more friendly!

    1. Well maybe ticket validator is not the right word, then. We could buy a ticket for ten trips. At the beginnig of the journey we put it into this validator to have a date stamp on it. Then you could travel for a set amount of time/distance,. Now we have a solution similar to your e-tag, it's called rejsekortet (the travel card) We wave it in front of a blue point when getting on, changing trains and getting off. And yes, the old system was more firendly, and for a few unlucky specimens - among those, me - it's more expensive as well. I miss my old validators whatever their name.
