Beautiful Copenhagen

Aleks and the elephant Last weekend was sensational, despite the lingering effects of jetlag. Saturday Glen & Anna took us to the zoo which was wonderful even for me. I saw quite a few animals I’d not seen before (tapir, red panda) and there were even a few familiar ones: kookaburras and a Tassie devil. Aleks in particular had a ball, loved the tigers, rode a pony, and of course visited the gift shop. Velinka had arrived that morning from Serbia & will stay for about 2 weeks to help us out, so she came too.
Nyhavn (New Harbour)Sunday we headed back out for a canal cruise, which was lovely (but went on a little too long for poor Aleks). Parts of the city are very reminiscent of Amsterdam, by design it turns out. We saw beautiful Marmorkirken, the Little Mermaid, the amazing new playhouse and opera house on the harbour, as well as the royal yacht.

 

We ran out of food on the cruise, so we were forced to eat each other's nosesAfter that hunger got the better of us and we headed up to Kongens Have (King’s Gardens) for a leisurely picnic in the sun
