Today we went to the botanical gardens and saw the tiniest frogs ever. Then on to the crown jewels! We went to Rosenborg Slot (castle) to view the stately rooms, royal trinkets, and funny old-fashioned portraits (seriously, why don't they ever smile?). Drew, we saw one old Danish king that looked just like you! Underneath the castle we toured the royal treasury where the queen's crown and jewelry are kept when she's not wearing them. So sparkly.
We spent the afternoon with Jens Juel, C.K. Eckersberg, Edouard Munch, Anne & Michael Ancher, Christian Kobke and other bigwigs in the Danish art world at the Statens Museum for Kunst. Also had a great time at the Geologisk Museum, though the displays were all in Danish, so we had to make up stories to go with them. Good times.
Having a great time here in Copenhagen. Wouldn't say no to a blog comment or two though. If you miss us that is.
Love to all,
Jaima and Jillian
