Blast From The Past – Copenhagen & The Little Mermaid
I had a blast from the past, and my gosh – it was fast! There was just one picture from this place – Copenhagen in Denmark. I lived there for one and a half years, but don’t think I took too many pictures while I was there. That’s really too bad. Anyway, here is one that I have with me in it – visiting the statue of The Little Mermaid.
Can you tell that it looks cold? Do you see the ice? I can still remember how cold it was and the constant snow. However, Copenhagen is a very pretty place. I wish I had taken more pictures. Perhaps I might have more that may show up – I hope so.
Want to know something? I can never forget Denmark! I can remember the main street in Copenhagen – Vesterbrogade – and Tivoli – the touristy amusement and visitor park, opposite Burger King. I can remember going to the train station on Sunday morning to get a freshly fried doughnut – filled with jam, and a piping hot cup of coffee that would warm me up from the cold that I had escaped outside. I would read a British newspaper that I bought in the train station. I remember the smell of freshly made waffle cones, and the delicious Danish ice-cream.
I remember Danish! Jeg hedder Davinder, hvad hedder du? Jeg kommer fra England, and jeg boed i Danmark hal et ar. Excuse my basic Danish, but I still remember more of it than I do of French that I took for a year in England at school. I guess it helped because I lived there and spoke it, and listened to it every day.
Denmark, you will always have a special place in my heart, but I can say one thing…..I’m glad I escaped the cold!
