Visiting the mermaid

And I saw the famous mermaid or siren … Rosalia, what are you talking about, where are you? Yes, I arrived in Copenhagen, Denmark; the city where this popular attraction is located. A very nice city, with history and, at the same time, with many curiosities about it.

During the days I was there, I opted to take tours with Sandemans. They offer good tours, at affordable prices, and there are also the famous free walking tours. The best thing about taking them is that not only do you see the city and the popular places, but you also know the history of that famous place or monument, that all photograph, with madness.

During the free tour they told us that this city suffered a considerable amount of fires. And, apparently, it was something common that happened. Another thing they told us was the quality of life that people have and all the help that the government offers, so that people study.

On the second day, I took another tour and this one went to Christiania, a hippie community, with its own laws and where smoking marijuana is allowed, to its residents, although it is quite guarded by the police. If you want to see something different, it is a good option. Ahh! and the houses that are inside this commune are very curious, in their facades. In addition, it has a very beautiful lake.

Another curious fact, that we were told during this tour, is that in most of the city center apartments, there is no washing machine. How? YES! They say that for the small spaces and maintain the architecture, there is not enough space for a washing machine on each floor, so it was used a common washing machine, for all floors.  And another thing, many buildings do not have an elevator. Now, do not be scared if you plan to move there, as the most modern or renovated buildings do have an elevator and space for the washing machine, lol.

Then, we chose to take a tour of the center, eat something and take advantage of the  beautiful days, that we enjoyed in this city.
And well, my last day arrived, pitifully. On this day, I had it complete to see something more and rest, after two exhausting days; since I was traveling to my next destination at midnight.

Luckily, where I stayed I met several people with whom I could talk and have a good time, before leaving.

Until next time, Copenhagen …

Visitando a la sirena
Y vi la famosa sirena…Rosalía, ¿de qué hablas, dónde estás? Sí, llegué a Copenhague, Dinamarca; la ciudad donde se encuentra esta popular atracción. Una ciudad muy bonita, con historia y, a la vez, con muchas curiosidades sobre la misma.

Durante los días que estuve, opté por tomar tours con Sandemans.  Ofrecen buenos tours, a precios accesibles,  Y también están  los famosos free walking tours. Lo mejor de tomarlos, es que no sólo ves  la ciudad y los lugares populares, sino que conoces la historia de ese famoso lugar o monumento, que todos fotografían, con locura.

Durante el free tour nos comentaron que esta ciudad sufrió una cantidad de incendios considerables. Y es que, al parecer, era algo común que pasara. Otra cosa que nos comentaron fue la calidad de vida que tienen las personas y todas las ayudas que ofrece el gobierno, para que las personas estudien.

Al segundo día, tomé otro tour y éste fue a Christiania, una comunidad hippie, con sus propias leyes y donde fumar marihuana está permitido, a sus residentes,  aunque sí está bastante vigilado por la policía. Si quieren ver algo distinto, es una buena opción. Ahh! y las casas que están dentro de esta comuna son muy curiosas, en sus fachadas. Además, tiene un lago muy bonito.

Otro dato curioso, que nos dijeron durante este tour, es que en la mayoría de los apartamentos del centro de la ciudad,  no hay lavadora. ¿Cómo? ¡SÍ! Dicen que por los espacios reducidos y mantener la arquitectura, no hay espacio suficiente para una lavadora en cada piso, por lo fue utilizan una lavadora común, para todos los pisos. Y otra cosa, muchos edificios no tienen elevador.  Ahora bien, no se asusten si tienen pensado mudarse allá, pues los edificios más modernos o reformados sí cuentan con elevador y espacio para la lavadora,  jeje.

Luego, optamos por dar una vuelta por el centro, comer algo y aprovechar de unos hermosos días, que disfrutamos  en esta ciudad.
Y bueno, llegó mi último día, lastimosamente. En este día, lo tenía completo para ver algo más y descansar, luego de dos días agotadores; ya que viajaba a mi siguiente destino, a la media noche.

Por suerte, donde me alojé conocí a varias personas con las que pude hablar y pasar un buen rato, antes de partir.

Hasta la próxima,  Copenhague…
