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.

Copenhagen was great! Jesper picked me up from the airport and it had to be the easiest transport (and affordable) into the centre. Just a oneway metro and 36dkk (6usd). Copenhagen’s architecture is similar to stockholm but different (sorry that doesn’t explain much). I had the feeling when I saw the city, that okay..this is Scandinavian, mainly due to the similarities to Stockholm. I haven’t been to Oslo but I imagine something similar.

I got to ride the bike around town, try delicious snacks, have the meal of coffee (similar to the Swedish fikka) and meet great people. I saw the little mermaid  and had a delicious classic danish pølser from a stand outside round tower.
