Street Life Tips (6)

Neat, display stands :)

Check this out! Domestic household articles neatly arranged on attractive stands.

The prices are clearly visible I hope ;)

It looked good enough to eat ;)

You're supposed to use 'good' brushes for your clothes.

And 'bad' brushes???? They're for bath-time spanking when you've been a bad boy ;) ! ???? Bad in Danish means BATH :)

Ships in channels of Copenhagen

Observing sailing of tourist ships in channels of Copenhagen we admired with the skill of captains to maneuver on narrow water spaces.

It seemed to us that a ship already has got stuck in narrow channel between a bridge and a parapet of quay... But - nothing at all! Some confident movements and a ship again continued the way.

Children's playgrounds

My second remark also is connected with life of small Danes in Copenhagen. I saw children's playgrounds in court yards of churches for the first time in my travels. It caused dual sensation.

On one hand, children join religion and city culture since their early childhood. It is good! But on another hand children are forced to be on a tiny playground among crowds of people, near to cars and far from any vegetation in conditions of the polluted city. It is bad in our opinion.

In Russia you will not see such a thing. May be it's a feature of Moscow not of Copenhagen?
May be it's quite usual for other European country - not only in Denmark, I don't know!

Children on the streets

My remarks concerning customs in Copenhagen can seem trivial to Europeans but some stages which I saw in streets of this city are very unusual to Russians.

First we saw several big groups of children who walked on the city centre together with the tutors, having joined hands and crossing numerous groups of tourists. It seemed very risky action for us - Russians! You can hardly see groups of little children walking on the brisk streets of Moscow. It's too dangerous for such city as Moscow.

May be it's quite usual for other European country - not only in Denmark, I don't know!

Cant afford to sit in a bar?

Danes seem to be quite tolerant of behaviour such as making a street square your own drinking bar! I tried to click this vodka gulping man from front, but he came up announced that he is a major in the army and threatened to kill me. So I stepped back and asked him to enjoy!

Street performers by the...

Street performers by the Caritas Fountain in Gammeltorv. If you see some performers and like their act, give them some change, especially if you take their picture. It was fun watching these two 'statues'.
