The lights of Copenhagen

Last week me and the wife was in Copenhagen on a concert. It was at the Forum in the part of Copenhagen called Fredriksbjerg. Fredriksbjerg is a municipality surrounded by the City of Copenhagen in all directions. In Sweden Fredriksbjerg would have been merged with the larger city around it. But not in Denmark. So Fredriksbjerg lives on and is alive and kicking. Anyway; Copenhagen is home, memories, childhood and scents and sounds. I love the streets, the street names, the houses and buildings, the shops and all the other things that makes Copenhagen so familiar to me. Even the constant flow of cars, busses and bike riders is something I like. And the very creative way of parking a car is charming. As the capital of Denmark the city has it’s problems, of course. All major cities does. But the positive side exceed by far the negative. If I could, I would be there more often. But Copenhagen is also beautiful from a distance. From across the sound for instance. The glittering, twinkling lights from Copenhagen seen from the swedish side of Öresund are full of warmth and ladden with memories of people long gone. It’s like a greeting from afar. We are here, waiting for you when it’s your time to make the final journey. Not on a chariot or on angel wings but on an old DSB-ferry by the name Hamlet.
