Denmark – last day, last post!

On our very last day I was all tourist-ed out, so we decided to spend the day leisurely wandering around the city and shopping, getting rid of the last few kroner we had before returning home. I had already bought a souvenir – a couple of really nice hand painted mugs from a Copenhagen pottery, but Javier needed a souvenir and he figured he could find one at the flea market by the canal. So we headed off with mom and dad to the flea market booths and that market did not disappoint! The tables were all full of antiques – it was only antique dealers throughout – but the prices were completely reasonable which I was not expecting. I got a really cool porcelain pillbox for 25 kroner (about 4 dollars) and after shopping through the whole market, Javier finally decided on a cool stein mug that he can use for hot tea or cold beer. He saw similar steins in the museum and thought they were cool so that was a perfect souvenir for him. I also found a beautiful, ornate rose stem vase that I can use for roses from our garden, a cool last minute find. En nuestro ultimo dia yo ya estaba acabada, no queria mas turismo, asi que decidimos pasar el dia tranquilamente dando vueltas por la ciudad, mirando vitrinas, y gastando los ultimos kroners que nos quedaban antes de volver a casa. Yo ya habia comprado un souvenir – un  par de tazones pintados a mano de una sala de artesania en Copenhague, pero Javier necesitaba un souvenir tambien y penso que podria encontrar uno en una feria de las pulgas cerca del canal. Asi que nos fuimos en camino a la feria con mis papas para visitar los diferentes stands y la feria no decepciono! Las mesas estaban llenas de antiguedades – eran solo vendedores de antiguedades – pero los precios eran muy razonables lo cual no me lo esperaba. Yo encontre una muy buena cajita para pildoras de porcelana por 25 kroner (mas o menos 4 dolares) y despues de recorrer toda la feria, Javier por fin se decidio por un jarron con tapa que puede usar para te o cerveza. Vio unos similares en el museo y penso que eran geniales asi que fue el souvenir perfecto para el. Tambien encontre una muy linda vasija para rosas, con hermosos detalles que usare para poner rosas de nuestro jardin, una cosita de ultimo minuto.

On our way back to the hotel we stopped at a little coffee spot and while Javi and I stood outside waiting for mom and dad to come back out we saw a walking tour group standing in front of a building taking photos. We didn’t know what the building was but we knew Kierkegaard’s house was nearby and that mom and dad had wanted to see it, so he ran over there to check and sure enough, it was right there! So we surprised mom and dad with that discovery, and then mom and I found a legit thrift store right across the street from the house. We spent about 20 minutes in there and I found a really cool sailor-looking skirt that is perfect to wear on stage (see below – I wore it at a show with Hickory Slims!). Too fun! En nuestro recorrido de vuelta al hotel, paramos en un pequeno café y mientras Javi y yo esperabamos afuera por mis papas vimos un grupo de un tour de caminata parados frente a un edificio sacando fotos. No  sabiamos que significado tenia el edificio pero sabiamos que la casa de Kierkegaard (un filosofo religioso muy famoso y favorito de John y Annie) quedaba cerca y que mis papas querian verla. Asi que Javi corrio a ver que era y justo, era la casa! Asi que sorprendimos a mis papas con ese descubrimiento, y luego con mi mama encontramos una tienda de segunda mano al frente de la casa. Asi que pasamos mas o menos 20 minutos mirando que tenian y yo me compre una falda estilo marinera que pienso sera genial para usarla en el scenario cuando tenga un show. Muy entretenido!

It was a nice, leisurely way to spend the rest of our time in Copenhagen. We had a wonderful 9 days in Copenhagen, but we’d been without the dogs for 10 days and we were definitely ready to get back home to the doggos! We missed them a lot even though we got to see them from time to time on the webcams at The Dog Spot – and we hope they missed us too! Fue un dia comodo y tranquilo, perfecto para pasar nuestro ultimo dia en Copenhague. Pasamos fantasticos 9 dia en Dinamarca, pero hemos estado sin nuestros perros por 10 dias y definitivamente los extranamos y queremos volver a verlos! Los extranamos a pesar de poder verlos en las camaras web de el Dog Spot – y esperamos que ellos nos extranen tambien!
