I used those in Budapest and the UFO Tower in Bratislava for a presentation to Fellows of ICE (the Institution of Civil Engineers) in Rochester in November 2018 for an after dinner talk titled The Bridges of Budapest at the invitation of Sue Threader, the CEO of Rochester Bridge Trust. I discussed various aspects of bridges including politics and the economics of trade.

The bridge to the Chocolate Museum, Cologne
