The day started off at a bakery in the city center for breakfast, and honestly I'm not sure of the name, since ya know, I'm in Denmark, but the selection of baked goods was pretty solid. We both chose some sort of strawberry pastry type thing. Basically it was chocolate covered cake, a cool whippy type substance and strawberry goo. Such a good start to the day. It was also required that no dessert could be left behind. This was easily accomplished, actually. Oh yeah, I also took a lurker shot of a dog. But go look at the picture, HOW COULD I NOT!? Do you see the bow in it's fur?? DO YOU SEE IT?
|I was obsessed with this dog.|
After sitting and recovering for a bit our celebratory day had to be interrupted by a visit to the Danish Resistance Museum for our Holocaust and Genocide class. It was actually pretty interesting since I really didn't know anything about Denmark's role in WWII. Turns out, about 6,000 troops volunteered to support the Nazis, yet there is only a monument honoring the 50ish soldiers who supported the Allied forces....they also don't mention it was only about 50. I guess we create the history we want, right? Not so different from the United States, though, so I'm not surprised.
After that brief detour we continued our walk throughout the city, making our way to the Little Mermaid, which is probably the lamest famous landmark ever, but we had to go find it anyways. We also think we saw Sweden. There aren't any signs, like HEY that's Sweden, but we just assumed.

We walked for what felt like a million miles, but it was a nice day and we got to see more of Copenhagen, so it's all good. Then it was crepe time. We both got nutella and banana crepes from a guy with a cart, anddd got way too excited that the family in line in front of us was from Mexico. We have a slight Spanish obsession. The crepe guy was kinda obnox, mostly because I didn't feel like having awkward, trying to be funny, chit chat. I JUST WANTED MY CREPE. But all was forgiven when I ate it. Dear god, yum.
Next up was real dinner since we'd both just been eating dessert all day, and we knew we had to seriously plan and book our week off. Basically yesterday was the biggest success ever. Of Monsters and Men tickets were purchased. Look them up if you don't know them, porque I love them. Here, I did it for you. Plus our week off is pretty much set including Geneva, Switzerland, and Krakow, Poland. I'm pretty excited. We are both kind of bummed that Norway hiking didn't work out since it was a million dollars, but I guess the rest of Europe is pretty decent as well.
Continuing with the last leg of the dessert crawl, the long awaited Belgian Waffle with ice cream. Sorry I don't have a picture, I forgot to stick the memory card back in my camera. Woops. But it was a beautiful sight. Warm powdered sugar waffle topped with soft serve. SO. GOOD. Two more dessert crawls have been scheduled for the semester, since it's actually the best idea in the world. Also, family if you show your lovely faces in Copenhagen, we'll just have to do this. Good way to see the city and eat dessert. Well that's my life currently, don't be too jealous of all the calories I consumed.
