These are the pictures of my weekend, my first of many in Denmark. On Friday night, me and some friends went out to dinner, and I had cold pickled herring with potatoes, and my first glass of Carlsberg, the famous Danish beer. It was 10x better than American cheap beer. Anywho, we then went to see the famed Little Mermaid statue in the Copenhagen Harbor. The statue was turning 100 and there was a celebration including a performance from the Russian cast of “The Little Mermaid” (yes, Disney songs in Russian!) and a Danish flamenco dancer who danced and drummed the story of the little mermaid. It was amazing, if a bit puzzling. Then, today, we went to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. It was very modern– a lot of it went right over my head, or was simply not interesting. Overall, it was a good museum, but very big. We mostly saw the Yoko Ono retrospective, the shining gem of it was the “Wish Tree” and I took a lot of pictures of some of the wishes. There were also some powerful poems on the walls of the exhibit, and as I read “Water Talk” I started to cry. I hope you like the pictures as much as I liked the real sturf.
On another note, trying to keep up with all the sweets I eat, I had koldskål, a dish where you put (basically) nilla wafers in a bowl with buttermilk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Then you eat it cold, like cereal. It’s weird, kind of good.
