Our first day in Copenhagen was.........gray. It was gray all day and while the temperatures are comparable to those in Macedonia, we had not factored in the wind-chill that made walking around really cold. So, we layered up and left our room looking like Mr. and Mrs. Michelin.
That first day, we visited some famous Danish landmarks like the queen's palace, the citadel, the statue of The Little Mermaid (written by Hans Christian Andersen). She really is little and she blended into the grayness of the water and sky.
On our second day, we caught brief glimpses of the sun.
These scenes are in the Nyhavn (New Harbor) area of Copenhagen. Our hotel, Hotel Bethel, was just across the canal from these lovely, renovated structures.
We tried to eat dinner at a Danish restaurant (Sankt Anne's) tonight but found that it was open only for lunches. The restaurant was also completely booked through Christmas Day. Instead we settled on a Chinese restaurant on the same street. The food at Dim Sum (Sankt Annae Plads 16) was fresh and tasty. The scallops were luscious, tender, and the best I've ever had.
