We had 24 hours in Copenhagen and the goal was for Angel to complete the CPH Marathon in under 4 hours.
Copenhagen is a city of happy, obedient Vikings who know how to bake a cinnamon roll and drink beer (though not concurrently, I don’t believe, and better as such).
We felt a slight chill in the evening air, sporting our mid-weight jackets, while Vikings strolled around in flip flops and short pants. Note to self: do not visit Denmark in winter.
Bicycles waited at intersections, with not a moving vehicle within earshot. Pedestrians, too, halted at corners without traffic though skipped through the middle of the streets, like Whac-A-Mole, between cars and bikes. If they were not actually disobedient to a blatant red light, jaywalking appeared quite excuseable.
We whispered in daylight, walking down the street, feeling our normal volume was too loud for such a quiet society. The sounds were slight, but smells were incredible, oscillating from bakeries to florists, cinnamon to tulips.
We ran circles around the city, Angel moving quite quickly and Christine trying to track and intercept him for a couple kisses during the Copenhagen marathon.
He did it!
The energy throughout the cit was calm, yet inviting. Everyone was quite friendly, helpful, and encouraging.
Taking a stroll through the gardens, post-race, we toasted some Carlsberg to another great adventure.
We had but a taste of Denmark, but it was a good bite. Congratulations, Angel.
