May 11, 1502: Columbus makes his fourth and last trip to the Indies. I wonder if he wished he had this bike?
May 11, 1751: The first hospital is founded in America in Pennsylvania. I wonder if bikes were used instead of ambulances in the old days to carry sick patients.
May 11, 1963: Puff the Magic Dragon became the second most popular song. Do you think this bike was in a parade when that song was being played?
May 11, 1968: Police and students battle in Paris and hundreds are killed. This is similar to what is happening in Occupy Central. Maybe this bike is related to the protests. Lisa Auntie was telling me about a famous Chinese artist Ai Weiwei who uses bicycles as part of his protest art.
Also, we learned that the famous artist Salvador Dali was born on May 11. Maybe the painter of the bike loves Salvador Dali? As you can see I have a lot of questions and ideas about this bike.
I would love to hear what you think about the bike and why its there in the comment section to this post. Have a great weekend. -Elliana
