Assorted photos from my life right now. Copenhagen is going through its spring routine. I try to rehabilitate from a year where I haven't been able to move around much. At least it seems that I will be able to recover fully. The earlier diagnosis that my foot was wrecked was wrong. So I am out walking on sore feet and biking every day.
The first image is Rantzausgade where my grandfather grew up as a classic riff-raff proletarian boy of the 1920s (he later became a very respectable man with a degree in literature and such).
Then it is Rundetårn (round tower) and a wall of the old university library… in between are the central public library where I, thanks to a recommendation from Clarice Boomshakalaka Bouvier on the Diaspora network, lend the Tom Robbins novel, Still Life with Woodpecker.
Very much a novel as they wrote them when I was younger... absolutely recommendable.
The Tom Robbins book from the library was almost falling apart, but my wife, who is an incredible craftsman well stocked with tools and materials and who as a teenager worked in an old fashioned bookbinder, of course had some bookbinder tape - so I repaired the book after her instructions. Now it will be readable for years to come.
Then two pictures of my wife bicycling in high heels - just to prove that this is both common and doable (I heard two American girls here in Copenhagen totally flabbergasted of the fact).
The thing about bicycling is that you do not need to have a special costume to use it. Just jump in the saddle and go. I have been riding bicycle in white tie many times (as my wife is a very distinguished person). No problem.
And last… my potent rye sourdough trying to escape.
- See how i use the sourdough to bake Danish rye bread
- And here's an introduction I wrote many years ago about this stable of Danish cuisine
