Just came back from a weekend stay in Copenhagen despite the flu I had but I was grateful it didn’t get worse. I am feeling much better now, except for a runny nose but I feel that it will be over soon, too. Denmark is just a neighboring country of Sweden so it’s not really far to drive to its capital city, Copenhagen. We usually drive through this country when we drive further south like Germany, Austria, etc. We decided to explore the capital city this time around, though the main purpose would be to celebrate my birthday away from home, ahehee.
Denmark has a mild winter weather so it’s not that cold to take a walk to the park and on the streets. Just like when we walked to see this world known Little Mermaid based from the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, a Danish author and poet. I was surprised to see people, probably tourists, gathered in front of the sculpture to get their own photograph with the mermaid in the background. Hubby and I were fascinated too so we waited till we got our chance. I have not seen hubby’s photographs with the system camera, he’s too tired now to download the photos in the computer. But I’m quite satisfied with this shot using my Canon G7. Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the fairy tale of this mermaid so I can’t relate a thing about it. However, I remember there was a film with the title, The Little Mermaid before.
