Filed under: — Administrator @ 06:40

At the beginning of the week I was in Copenhagen, so the first several pictures are from there. I also have a separate gallery from Copenhagen elsewhere, but please look here first 🙂

The weather was great, we were sitting at a cafe on Gammel Strand with our cappucinos and enjoying the sights:

Alternate 1
Walking down Strøget (the main pedestrian street), I saw this tough guy looking after a baby:

Alternate 2
In Roskilde, a nearby town, I saw this extremely well-behaved dog waiting for his human outside a shop. When she came out, the dog carried the basket (my own dog, by contrast, would stick her snout into the basket to see if there was anything edible):

One of my traditional activities in Copenhagen is to spoil the children of my friend Beata. Here they are selecting ice cream:
