Copenhagen may be a smaller capital city than others, but what’s special is how distinct each borough is. Thus, I embarked on adventure this Saturday to Nørrebro. This borough is known for the concentration of immigrants. I really enjoyed spending the day going through the streets.
After work I met with Coco to go to the ‘New World Image’ exhibition at the Black Diamond. The exhibition was a re-display of the original UNESCO human rights exhibit from the mid 1900’s. The original exhibit was created to help people understand what the UN Declaration of Human Rights in 1958 meant. The ‘New World Image’ also included a part devoted to human rights in Denmark. The exhibit has raised more than $4000 usd and will traveling around the world.
This weekend Jesper, Søren, Sarah and I loaded up the car and set out for Skive. It was Jesper’s aunts birthday on Sunday, so we decided to leave Thursday after work and go for the entire weekend. And following are the trips highlights:
I tried my first trøffel. It’s old cheese danish thats pressed together and covered in sprinkles.
Jesper’s grandpa recently moved; so, we took a short trip to check out his new place. Of course, the visit included a lovely long meal of coffee 🙂
We went for a lovely walk in the nearby nature.
And another trip to Himmelbjerget (Sky Mountain). One of the higher natural points in Denmark at 147m (482ft) high.
Last night I went with a friend to grab a beer. We ended up biking to Nørrebro and selected a place named Nørrebro Bryghus. Directly translated Nørrebro Bryghus means Nørrebro brewery. Started in 2003 and now has become a restaurant too. I would describe the atmosphere as what Danes call hyggelig (closest English translation is cozy)and welcoming. After talking to the bartender we decided to order two samplers. A sampler consist of four 10 cl beers for 70dkk. We ordered two so that we could taste 8 different beers on tap. Marlene had the great idea to write down our initial reactions and here they are.
