I got to go to Copenhagen for a work thing yesterday and I really liked what I could see in the few hours I had in town. The people were friendly (and gorgeous!) and the scenery was pretty cool.
However, before I got there, I sighted some Scots in the Wild. Craig went by bus/ferry to Paris to watch the Scotland-France 2008 European qualifier game (Scotland won, 0-1) but there were plenty of kilt wearing fans going by plane:
That's me trying to be stealthy with my camera phone.
Anyway, since I went to Copenhagen by myself, I was really tempted to hole myself in the hotel room, order room service, and watch Dharma & Greg (in Danish!). But I knew that would be sadder than eating alone in a restaurant so as soon as I checked in, I asked the receptionist to have a taxi for me in half an hour. The taxi driver was really nice and dropped me off at his favorite Japanese restaurant. It may sound stupid to be eating Japanese food in Copenhagen, but since the whole country is fishing industry oriented, the sushi was divine. I chatted a bit with my waiter and he guided me toward what direction to walk about in town to see the most while staying safe, since it was getting kinda late.
The shops were of course all closed but it was fun window shopping. I must have been in a very touristy section because they were all high end shops like Gucci and Prada. I loved checking out the sort of style their shops had and what I noticed as a marked difference was they don't do as much print in their fabrics but more interesting cuts in neutral colors. Me likey.
But the definite highlight of the evening was stumbling across this shop window that had the happiest/scariest bride mannequins EVAR:
Bride on the right: I am so HAPPEE to be a BRIDE AHHHHH!!!!
Bride on the left: OMGMETOOOOOO! YAYYY!!
Anyway, don't let them scare you. I really liked Copenhagen and I hope to go back for a full weekend soon.
