The next day (thursday) was our big day of looking around Copenhagen itself. We visited the town hall (which has an astronomical clock, although our timing was off for a tour), the little mermaid statue, the round tower (attached to the trinity church), Rosenborg castle (has the Danish Crown Jewels), chased the uniform guards through the streets to the changing of the guard ceremony at Amalienborg palace (the royal residence), the Amalienborg museum, the marble church, then the Christianborg castle (ruins of previous castles underneath it, the royal mews, and the royal reception rooms
Food wise, when we met with cousin Jan, we just ate at the hotel restaurant, which interestingly was a Vietnamese restaurant open to the general public, whereas for breakfast it was just for the hotel, and more traditional Danish (lots of breads, cold meat and cheese, plus waffles, and some sausages, bacon, soft boiled eggs and cereals). We've also managed to have some good traditional fare including smørrebrød (open sandwich), and a few pork dishes.
I'm just finishing this entry off during our flight to Berlin, so will get it uploaded when we next have Internet access.
