I live near the centre of a large European city of eight million people, and I want it to be quiet all the time.
I also want unimpeded roads for traffic to travel freely, and no cyclists or runners allowed anywhere.
Some people have always lived in such a place and don't remember (almost) weekly disruption. Lots of people can't earn money because of it too.
Saying that, I agree with EW on this one, it is a one off and we should enjoy it. Weather permitting, Mrs b and I will be going to watch the mincers tomorrow.
