La fiebre inaugural que antecede a unas elecciones a veces tiene como consecuencia alguna mejora para el ciudadano. La revitalización del parque de la Arganzuela en Madrid –una isla verde en la ribera del Manzanares, jalonado por el Vicente Calderón y la M30- tiene un aliado en el puente proyectado por el arquitecto francésDominique Perrault, autor también de la Caja Mágica.

El puente peatonal une las dos riberas del Manzanares, el paseo de Yeserías y la calle Antonio López. Con una longitud de 278 metros y se divide en dos piezas asimétricas que confluyen en una colina, desde la que se desciende al parque de la Arganzuela.

El nuevo puente “flota” sobre el parque y el río, convirtiéndose en un mirador, en una zona de paseo a pie o en bicicleta. Para proteger a los viandantes en los calurosos veranos madrileños, se le ha dotado de una estructura helicoidal sobre la que se tensa una malla de acero que proporciona sombra.

Para las horas de oscuridad se ha previsto una iluminación adecuada.

El nuevo puente es el colofón del proyecto municipal Madrid Río, que pretende recuperar las riberas de Manzanares para el uso vecinal, el esparcimiento de los ciudadanos, la práctica de deportes y los juegos infantiles. De esta forma se une al pasillo verde del oeste madrileño que incluye el Parque del Oeste, la Casa de Campo o los jardines del Campo del Moro.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
