Copenhagen, August 1!
This time our first destination was “Papirøen”, a street food market. Here was not only a lot of food, but also unusual food! “Gourmet hot dog” was one of them. Here wasn’t just ordinary food, but also Ice cream, pastries, and gourmet pancakes. As you can see from the pictures A, B, C, and D, you could sit inside as well as,outside. This day the weather was really nice, and most people were sitting outside. In picture A, a cow is hanging down from the ceiling.
The street food market is situated close to the water. We could see several boats passing by, with people who were sitting around a table, eating and drinking.
Picture E shows a new and modern part (at least for me) of the city, with modern architecture close to the water, serene atmosphere, marinas, and bridges with bicycle lanes, across the canal.
In picture F, you can see the bridge that takes you to the Island and back. Beside the bikeway there is some green colorful structure, and to the left of this structure, there’s a walkway which is used by pedestrians. In the background you can catch a glimpse of Nyhavn.
Picture G is pretty much similar to picture E.
Picture H shows the bridge I talked about before (picture F), but this time I’m standing on it. As you can see, the sky is mostly clear and the wind is just a slight breeze, so the weather is pleasant and very suitable for cycling.
Picture “I”. In the top right-hand corner we can see the colorful houses in Nyhavn. There is a red sightseeing tour bus on the bridge heading right. We can also see a long row of outdoor seating with beige colored “roofs”. If you take a closer look, you can see an opening in the middle of the bridge. This gap is for the tour boats to pass through. There are two white houses on the right side at the end of the bridge; in the first one there is an ice cream shop. Here you can buy ordinary ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate-coated marshmallow treats, but you can also get soft ice cream with cocoa powder or something else.
This picture is taken from the bridge. In the middle of the picture, there is a boat heading east. At the top of the picture, we can see the popular street food market where most of the customers are sitting outside in the lovely weather.
In this picture there are three big ships and four fishing boats. In the background on the left side, there is a cruise ship in the middle is a ferry and on the right side there is a warship. On the left side you can see a couple of jetties, and in the foreground there are some markers. (A ferry is a merchant vessel used to carry passengers and sometimes vehicles and cargo as well)
This picture shows some statues attached to a wall. The wall is an extended and connected part, of the Royal Danish Theatre.
Nyhavn from a closer distance. Now you can see the colored houses more clearly. On the right side there is an advertisement in blue and yellow. This is where you can buy your ticket for the canal tour boats. The first blue house among the row houses is the oldest one in Nyhavn, built in 1681. In this house (like in most of the other houses too) there is a restaurant. This one serves the delicious dish “Dansk Fläskesteg”. The next three photos are connected to this restaurant. The first one shows their fresh toilet. The second shows parts of the frontage together with most of the menu and the sign that gives the information about the house, that I mentioned earlier. The third shows a delicious meal.
A metro station under construction (and has been so since 2011, I think) at Kongens Nytorv. When it opens in 2020, it will take only four minutes between Kongens Nytorv and Hovedbangården (the central station). This distance is a 30-minute walk. Between the two buildings, begins the famous pedestrian street “Strøget”. The biggest building is a hotel.
The same square, but more zoomed in.
The “elves”, Ivan, are an illusion from India! A big, long, black sack was covering the two street performers during several minutes, supervised by the man in the sandals, before uncovering. It was a kind of suspect incident. In the background you can see a French flag and the iconic logo for Huawei. In the early evening, the sky had become cloudy.
A man is “sitting”, or should we say hovering, in the air. He’s holding a rod. Above him is a girl, and she was doing some circular hand gestures right above the rod. I think she’ll grip the rod soon, and then it will looks like she’s holding up her body with just her arm.
