café mandela, now my favorite bar for live music, drinks and dancing. the danes do not like to dance unless specifically directed to do so--something we found out after deciding that the world was our dance floor, and if they were going to sing "valerie," well, there was no way we weren't dancing. at first, the americans were...

christiania, the land of the free peoples. a communist collective that lived through the 70s, lived to tell about it, and i'm fairly certain are stuck somewhere between 1980 and 2000. it has its charms though. and i highly endorse micro-level communism, thus making christiania one of my favorite neighborhoods in copenhagen. currently, around 1000...

blomster, dearest blomster. the cutest in all the land. somehow, copenhagen in october can assume the role of paris in may. flowers stay outside past the point when my lips turn blue, somehow maintaining perfect color and shape. the shops themselves transform into central american jungles, with a perfect 80 degree thermostat and 100% humidity....
