I am spending this week in Denmark, my first trip here this year because of the 
damn virus, and I so enjoy being back in my beloved country. Yesterday I spent 
all day walking around Copenhagen before taking a train to Aarhus in the early 
evening. My legs hurt afterwards, but it was worth it. A few little vignettes 
from the day.

In the morning, I went to see “Freedom”, a statue commemorating the 100th 
anniversary of Denmark’s colonies in the Carribean to the US in 1917. The 
statue symbolizes a slave rebellion in the 1840s and reminds us that we too 
have a dark past involving colonies and slaves. Fittingly, it was made by an 
artist from Ghana, the country from where slaves were shipped to the Virgin 
Islands to work on the plantations. It stands in front of the Ministry of 
Foreign Affairs:

After lunch I walked around Kongens Have, a 17th century park established, like 
much else in Copenhagen, by Christian IV in the 17th century. The castle in the 
background is called Rosenborg and houses the Danish crown jewels among many 
other things:

Autumn colours surround our storyteller H.C. Andersen:

And finally Nyhavn. This scene is a bit of a cliché, but a nice cliché:
