A trip to Copenhagen
Part 3: Danish Drizzle
The skies decided
to change overnight, and the next morning greets us with
Danish rain drizzling down from diffuse clouds, making for
a long breakfast with English Tea, peach joghurt and sweet
bread sprinkled with sesam.
The slow morning
gets interrupted by a beep. "What's the plan?",
a friend asks via sms. There is none yet, only a pile of
walk along the water in the old old town area of Nyhavn?
Modern Art in the Louisiana Museum? The alternative side
of life in Christiania? Or just circling the cafes and cobblestoned
steets of Strædet? Tivoli Gardens? Carlsberg Glyptotek?
answer comes on the
way to town, on a street crossing, with a bus passing by.
"Sightseeing Tour", it says. Sounds terribly touristy,
but then, let's face it, that's what we are today, and the
rain hasn't stopped yet either. We get tickets for the red
line, get our sits, and wait for the sights of Copenhagen
to be brought to us, all freshly washed.
There is Tivoli
passing by, then a palace to the right, a statue to the
left. Red lights give time to look. Long lines of houses
along a canal, a huge ship, and a history lesson via headphones:
"In 1318, a red flag fell down from the sky. That was
how Denmark was founded."
The little mermaid, make sure to take your photos and your
umbrellas. Take some of those Moments
Off the bus,
on the bus. The weather isn't good, but then there is something
about this moody colour of the sky melting into the sea.
Or maybe it's just me.
