So,I had no book business in Copenhagen. I was there because it's the closest big airport to Kristianstad, Sweden, and the most sensible place from which to fly to Madrid. Thanks to the luck of timing, I arrived Saturday early afternoon and left Sunday noon, and I'm SO GLAD. It's a stunning, colorful, lived-in city and it was love at first sight for me. I'll make a point of going back.
I don't have loads of time, so I don't provide a lot of explanation here -- sorry. I just wandered and took pictures until late, mainly, then got up really early and wandered again.
Lots here, so I'm putting most behind a cut, which will hopefully work from my phone.

(I couldn't resist with the musicians shown above, either.
Though at least in that case, I could give them some money.)
