Copenhagen / København Pride

Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?

The Pride parade is interesting in that while it takes place in central city Copenhagen, the roads were only closed as the parade took place. Not hours before till hours after. Police travelling in front of the parade would close the roads and divert traffic shortly before the arrival of the parade participants, and once they had passed, the roads are opened shortly after. So efficient.

Copenhagen

Our gateway to the Nordic Countries, we landed in Copenhagen after a long flight from Singapore. We have a week and half here in Copenhagen. Plenty of things to see and do, but our hotel is pretty rubbish. Still, there wasn’t that many places that would fit out budget, so it’s not like we can pick and choose…

The DIY laundry place has a payment and operations system so bizarre that, even if you understand Danish, you probably still need someone to walk you through it. Luckily we bumped into a helpful local, who showed us how to use it and what pitfalls (wrong button presses) to avoid.
