Oh – man! So much happening in just two weeks in our home country!
On the 25th of August, we had been married for 13 years and celebrated by going for a city walk in our hometown. The town is celebrating the anniversary of H.C. Ørsted, who discovered electromagnetism, so we went to see the exhibition in the Round Tower build by one of our greatest kings as an observatory (and church tower) for Tycho Brahe, a great astronomer from the 16th century. We love this tower, it is extremely beautiful, and we love exhibitions on art, science, and history, and we were so grateful for this particular one, as the people working in the exhibition were so excited to explain everything, and everything was very interesting.
So much we did not know before. For the Danish readers, I highly recommend reading about this man and his life. One peculiar thing is his invention of 2000 danish words, some never existed before, some he made a danish version of a word normally only used in Latin, german or french.
We went also to the great bookshop, where I spent the last cash my first mother gave me before she died – on books for my children, and to the huge boardgame-shop where we could spend hour and hours (and we did) exploring the world of games with the highly competent people working there, it is a pleasure to research new options and old classics.
Fjord and daddy took a scooter to the corner of the city where we had decided to enjoy a vegan cake to celebrate, and all of the rest of us walked really fast, a bit frustrated, as we are Danes and Danes bike – I miss my bike. But we are ex-pat Danes, tourists in our own town, and it felt a bit strange. But okay. If we can walk in all of the other cities, we can walk in Copenhagen too.
