a day around copenhagen…

with 2 comments

so i’m back again at my favourite square in Copenhagen, this time at a different cafe from the last time.  grilled portobello mushroom with a nice crisp glass of sauvignon blanc is what i had a while ago.  it was sumptuous to say the least.

the delicate flavour of the mushroom was accentuated with an extremely fruity grilled tomato – topped with excellent olive oil, salt, chopped garlic and dried oregano.  lightly grilled goat cheese was extremely good with the ciabatta done to perfection.

at Barosso coffee, was the place i met two wonderful american friends on my last trip here.  sitting there at the table, my mind went back to the interesting conversation we had.

am leaving copenhagen in the morning for warsaw tomorrow, more updates then.

arrivederci!

Birds, originally uploaded by wili_hybrid.

in the end of the day, the camera got left behind (overweight on luggage).

but due to the wonders of modern technology, i am still able to bring to you, beautiful pictures of copenhagen (albeit not mine).

this one was probably shot at the town square (radhusplasen).

it’s been raining continuously and temperatures have been hovering around the low 10’s (celsius). its been pretty cold here especially with the wind chill. i’m going to stick around for another day, i’m heading on to warsaw tomorrow. more soon…
