six slices of cake, 28-dice games, and a cemetery
Our luggage is still lost, and they do not expect to return it to us on this trip. :( We have been wearing the same clothes for 4 days now, washing our underwear in the sink and blowdrying it in the morning. How glamorous! Also, all my fleece socks, thermal shirts and other Artice Circle-appropriate clothes that I purchased at North Face and REI specifically for this adventure are in the missing luggage. So we are woefully ill-equipped for the cities we are visiting after Copenhagen.
The upsides: Okay, so our hotel felt so sorry for us they double-upgraded us to the Royal Suite, which must go for easily $500 a night. We have the most beautiful view of Copenhagen from our window. Both bathroom floors are heated for your cold bare feet, our favorite royal touch.
The snow that screwed up our flights and luggage is so beautiful. We have been tromping through it all day, we love it.
We have shared six slices of six different cakes at La Glace.
We were able to attend the public gathering at the Royal Christening.
We made snow angels in the Kirkegaard Cemetery today.
We visited the hippie island Christiania and saw a WOLF puppy playing with a German Shephard.
We had an amazing vegetarian dinner with the very dear Liz Kastrup last night, followed by rowdy, rowdy gambling dice games in Bo Bi Bar with local, Heavy Metal loving, very drunken Danes who bought us drinks.
We are going to another amazing vegetarian restaurant tonight.
So okay no luggage but we have had a beautiful time for two days otherwise.
