Tonight we are in ODENSE, the birthplace of HC Andersen, and Mom is doing laundry. We didn't leave Copenhagen until afternoon, because Mom had thought of going back to Sweden since we had a horrid rainstorm last night, and any further trip would have been no fun. The thunder and lightning was so awful I was shaking hard...........I know I know, Mom keep saying it's no danger, but it's hard for me to believe that. Anyway around noon it started to clear up and it got sunny again, so off we went.

 

But first let me  continue in Copenhagen, we biked ( ok, I rode) another full day, and we went to Rosenborg castle in the middle of the city.

   

The Rosenborg  is another  renaisseance castle, and it  was originally built as a country summerhouse in 1606 and is an example of Christian's IV many architectural projects. It was built in the Dutch  style, typical of Danish buildings during this period, and has been expanded several times, finally evolving into its present condition by the year 1624

 

 

 The Rosenborg Castle Garden is the country's oldest royal garden and was embellished in the Renaissance style by Christian IV shortly before the construction of the main castle. Today, the gardens are a popular retreat for the people of Copenhagen, and attract an estimated 2.5 million visitors every year.............the scent of all the roses gave Moms allergies a lot of troubles

     

 

Lots of people laying around reading and napping.......and some of them looks like Americans ?

 

 

 

Next to the castle are barracks where the Royal life guards is garrisoned. ..........here's new guys getting trained to guard the castle and the queen..............It's hot, and they had to wear those bearskin hats...............it's silly I think.. How could they run after crooks in them ??

   

 

This guy already knows his stuff.............

 

  

so here he is protecting a stonefaced Queen...............

 

 

 

We continued biking to Moms favorite place when she was a puppy, but it doesn't even look close to what it was 40 years ago..................NOW it's super crowded with tourists, and wall to wall restaurants. 

Back than it was tattoo parlors, bars and sailors............

     

Not sure what this is supposed to mean, but maybe it has something to do with couples getting married, the locks has names on them .

Guess they  just throw the key in the canal, so there's no way of getting dethatched ?

 

 

we wanted to sit down and get a bite to eat, so Mom managed to get a spot for her bike, but first she had to move me to the back basket, since there was no way of getting me out from the front...

 

   

I found a great seat with this guy, who is biking tourists around for money............puh what a job !!!!!

 

  

 

Artists sho




    

 

This guy was MOm's favorite, a guy looking so happy just as long as someone was listening........we didn't see a hat or anything where he was begging for money ???

 

The art museum 

 

 


another guy pointing to us in the street ................now what's Mom doing wrong ??

 

 

oh well, we're finally heading back to Lucy, after a long day in the city.........and like I said, EVERYBODY is biking............and fast.........Mom is still not keeping up,and when she stops to take pictures of something we're in trouble, because we're in their way...............

just GO !!!!! we don't need pictures I say ...........ok, ok now i don't even remember what I'm taking pictures off ........

 

     

 

Forget about it, just keep pedaling .................

 

   


All over the place it's construction, I think all of Denmark is getting a facelift, even in the country side there is diggings and pavings and cranes ...........and

 

   

This must be some kind of greenhouse ?  or one of those experiental self contained housing ...........who knows, big city is making me tired..........

 

 

 


 laundry is done, and it's time for my evening walk ............see you tomorrow
