Last night in Copenhagen! But I only had two, barely a taste. I like this better than Stockholm, but that may be because I got to spend time with a wonderful friend, [ profile] linuxcub, but the city in general feels friendlier. Flatter, that's for sure, and I'll get a bike next time I'm here. Today was a repeat of my full Stockholm day in the sense of riding the hop-on/hop-off tourist bus and then taking a nap. Tonight, a production of "King Lear" that was advertised as "in German with Danish subtitles" but was actually in Danish, though one guy spoke English or French depending on which character he was playing.

Tomorrow, off to Hamburg, on the special train that rides its own ferryboat! I anticipate a good deal of knitting while riding a train that's riding a boat. I will get a bicycle next time I do this.

Did you find any great Danes or only very good ones?

Linuxcub is a very good one.

Yeah, usually the great Danes get all the attention, but the rest of us really appreciate a kind word now and then. Al made me feel so at ease even though he was the one in an unusual situation, away from home. But I meet (other ?) bears so rarely these days, I was worried about making a good impression.

Oh, I dunno, I'd say Linuxcub is a pretty Great Dane!

Such a pleasure to meet you !

How was King Lear ? The actor playing King Lear is possibly mostly known by the Danes as a comedic actor, but this was serious stuff ?

He's a Great Dane too!

He was wonderful in the lead, and had that skill level that let him show his comic ability and yet be very serious and moving. The production as a whole was cool, kind of post-modern, and I am in love with the theater! It wasn't the one I thought it was, right at the Metro station, so I had to walk quite a ways, but more than worth it.

I'm delighted to see you on LJ. Al's a great guy! We've met in person. Are you still commenting or posting?

Do you mean me ?

I still have my login, as you see. But I don't get here a lot. I should, though.

These days, I don't seem to have enough of a life to post both here and on FB :/
