After breakfast I attempted to call Expedia again. Without anything being accomplished. So I just shrugged my shoulders and made my way downstairs. I bought a train ticket at the front desk and after being re-affirmed several times that it was easy, I headed to the train station. It’s a strange thing that everyone here speaks English and Danish. They’re street names and train stops are all in Danish so I was really nervous about being able to remember where I was going and came from. I had things circled all over my map. But I made it to the stop circled in a big black line on my map and jumped off. Walking out of the train station and up onto the street was like walking into a dream. Beautiful building lined the narrow streets. Squares in the middle of some streets rang with people’s laughter and conversation. There were so many people, but the volume of the noise was much softer than I expected.
People on bikes were everywhere! These are very simple and clean people. The shops were not jam packed with products for people to buy, they were simple and neatly displayed with only enough items to display on walls. So much different than America. I thoroughly enjoyed looking in all the display windows and not being bombarded with stuff everywhere.
Another really neat thing, was at the palace, the queen had palace guards everywhere. They had a similar routine as the US Marines at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers in Washington DC. They were stunning and looked like teenage boys.
So this is it from day two. Tomorrow I am thinking out going to the King’s Garden and the mall. My hotel is right across the street from the largest mall in Scandinavia. So until tomorrow! God bless!
