Default Eurocon / Copenhagen - Hans' pictures (3)

Sightseeing in Copenhagen.

On the sightseeing bus.



Here she is, the little mermaid.



Maelin, seeing if she can pry a canon lose to take home with her...



Drat, even the cannonballs were stuck in place.



Wonderful fountain!



Changing of the guards at pickpocket square... err... in front of the royal palace I mean. Hoe CAN one see with half a black bear on your head?



Nye Haven.



New opera house.



The yaught of the Danish royals.



Little mermaid seen from the other side.



On the way.



The new national library (the KGB ) with an author in front, how appropriate.



Old, 17th century town farmhouse still in the middle of Copenhagen.



LOW, sometimes frightening bridges



At places Copenhagen looks like Amsterdam, only these canals are wider.



The weather chose to cooperate and we had a great canal ride.



Town Hall (where they also held the official con reception on Friday)

Deb, The weather couldn't have been better in my opinion...it was sunny and lovely...and warm enough for a few to go without jackets on a few of our days over there.

Excellent pics - thanks for sharing them! I agree, it is almost as good as being there.

Ah well - one con a year is about as many as I can manage and still stay married!
