A few hours in Copenhagen
I was lucky enough to spend yesterday in lovely Copenhagen. We had red hot dogs on Strøget, browsed for Lego and enjoyed fresh Danish pastry. As you do...
Picturesque, right? I love the street name 'Naboløs'. In Norwegian that would mean without neighbours.
Illum Bolighus, one of my all time favorite shops . The open atrium letting in light and the wood paneling on the walls are the kind of architectural details that I love. I thought the spring display with the trees and the colourful birds was a nice touch.
We couldn't really afford much in Illums, but Ellis bought this little Danish design souvenir - The Hoptimist. I would have liked to have the teak version, but it was DKR 400 (about US$ 70).
The big Lego shop had to be visited as well. Here's Ellis putting together some mini figures, choosing from hundreds of different parts.
And this is the result. I love the scary guy with a cap, holding a magic wand :-)
