Bonus afternoon posting!
We all got plenty of sleep last night – Wynn was snoozing until after 9 am, and I managed to get a good 8 hours in.
Our travels today put us on a bus downtown to the main square of Kongens Nytorv, and a short walk over to the historic neighborhood of Nyhavn (new port), where we took an hour-long cruise along the waterfront and canals. This was definitely the best way to see the sights! The castles, important public buildings, and cute upscale neighborhoods all face the water somehow. We covered a lot more ground by not being on the ground, and Wynn had a great time.
We had lunch at a little family café a couple blocks off Nyhavn (the restaurants along the canal are really marked up, but once you move into non-tourist territory, the prices come down…) where Wynn tried smorrebrod – an open-faced rye bread “sandwich” – with toppings of cold-boiled egg and shrimp, and loved it.
We then walked along the shopping avenue called Stroget for some people-watching, and finally caught a bus and train to get back to the hotel about 2:30. Ann’s taking a catnap, and Wynn’s zoned out with Disney Channel (Phineas & Ferb, dubbed in German…)
Depending on how everyone wakes up, we may head back downtown after dinner for a little more sightseeing…
