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.
belated happy birthday! wishing you the best in life and more blogs to come! 🙂

Edward, may Dyesebel naman diyan sa atin at medyo totoo pa yata kesa dito, hehee!
I hope you will be okay soon. It must be very hard to recover especially when you are in a cold country.
Your journey sounds interesting. We caught real mermaid in Malaysia. Human like form. It was really scary to see one, as it was not as beautiful as we thought.

Really! Really! I never believed mermaids exist for real. But if you found one in your country, then they exist.

It’s good to hear you feel well now and thanks for your sharing. I just downloaded a wallpaper on this using Google because you posted an watermark image. 🙂 Again thanks for increasing my knowledge.

Thanks for your concern. I feel better now.
Hubby got a wallpaper of this in the net, too. It looks better especially when the water is blue, right? My image is not that good.

The son of the founder of the world famous Carlsberg breweries, Carl Jacobsen, went to see a ballet adoption of the famous fairytale. He liked it so much, that he ordered a statue of the mermaid from the artist Edvard Eriksen, to be placed at Langeline, close to the Royal Palace.
Good to know about that! EE was the mastermind of this sculpture. Original is always the best.
Sayang hindi tayo nagkita. Sana next time kita kits tayo. Nagdrive lang ba kayo?. Yes mild ang winter ngayun signs daw ng climate change na usually frozen na lahat nagyun green pa rin mga grass. ALthough kahapon freezing point kaya lang boring na pag 3 or 4 madilim na eh.
It’s good nakita mo si Little mermaid hihiramin syang china eh lokohan nga dito ibabalik kaya nila ang orig.

Haa! Sa Copenhagen ka pala. Akala ko sa ibang city diyan sa Denmark. Na-mention ko pa naman sa asawa ko ikaw at di ko lang naitanong kung saan. Malamig pa rin dahil sa hangin.
Oo, sige ha, sa susunod kita-kits tayo. Nag-drive lang kami. At i-inform na kita sa susunod.
Just keep it a secret and try to find her again. If u open ur big mouth in front of lots of people there eather not gonna believe u or try to find her. I would just try to find her and learn more bout her species and lifestyle.

” Little mermaid i Davao ”
Har varit mycket ute på Internet och sökt information om din gamla hemstad Davao. Hoppas att kunna besöka staden senare i år. Hittade bl a att det finns en kopia av skulpturen i Davao.
Vet du något om hur och varför skulpturen har hamnat vid Baywalk i Davao.
Hej Sven Olof,
Jag som kommer från Davao hade ingen aning om det fanns Little Mermaid där, inte förrän jag lade denna bild och min före detta elev sa att det finns denna skulptur i Dvo med. Jag och min man var där nere förra året men vi hade inte hört talas om detta. Vi sökte på internet varför men vi hittade inte nåt svar. Tyvärr.
