A day in Copenhagen...

Back in the summer of 2009, Bill and I took our very first cruise on Royal Caribbean's Vision of the Seas.  It was a four night cruise.  We were "getting our feet wet", as it were.  Neither of us had ever cruised before and it was an economical way to see parts of Scandinavia.

One of the ports we visited was Copenhagen.  I had been curious about Denmark, even though that's where Bill and his ex wife got married and the start of so many of the problems from which we have spent ten years recovering.  Granted, if they hadn't married, I'd probably be a single woman... or married to some guy I don't like as much.  But maybe I'm just being cynical.  Surely there are other guys out there who could tolerate life with me.

Anyway, we enjoyed our June day in Copenhagen, wandering around the city.  We even got caught in a rainstorm...



This band played music as we got off the ship...


A still shot



Colorful bum...


Downtown Copenhagen



One of many lunch options...


7-11s are all over Scandinavia and they seem to enjoy selling pornographic looking hot dogs...


Signs in Denmark...


This was a massive outdoor exhibit...


 Some were pretty clever...


They loved George W. Bush...






Explanation please!




This wino could have been a street performer...



We had lunch here...

The inside of this place was really cool... murals and paintings all over the walls and only one other American there for lunch besides us...


The door to a beautiful church...


And this man played violin as we walked around the church...

We really only got a taste of Copenhagen during our day there.  I would love to go back sometime and really experience Denmark.  Something tells me I'd love it there.  But then, I feel very much at home in most parts of Europe.  I could spend many years there and be happy as a clam.  It was cold when we visited in early June.  Bill had to buy a jacket.  I bet it's beautiful in July and August.
