Our AirBnB host very kindly arranged a Christiania bike for us to use. We therefore could give Daughter the proper Copenhagen experience;
– find the closest bike shop to use the outside air pump to fill tires with much needed air;
– stand in line to take the mandatory covid test within 24 hours after entering the country. It was a long and slow moving line so it took us at least an hour start to finish. It was a rapid antigen nasal swob, the kind you could also do at home, but this time I received a signed document that someone with access to said documents read the negative result;
– enjoy lunch in the café next to the test location;
– bike all the way to the little mermaid and take a picture of Daughter in front of the mermaid;
– visit the ford Kastellet;
– show her Amalienborg, the Queen’s residence;
– stop for a drink at an old café where a slightly tipsy man tried to converse in English with another guest, slightly louder than necessary;
– cycle past Nyhavn, the old harbour (and tourist trap);
– stop at a random beautiful playground on our way home.
It feels good to be back.
