Summer Holiday Part V

We left Helsinki to see family and friends in Copenhagen greater area before heading back to Basel. First we spend a couple of days with Mortens family before moving to down town CPH to spend a day of shopping and visiting old friends.
As typical for the Danish capital, the weather were a mix of sun, clouds and occational rain. It's really hard to dress, one minut it feels like summer, the next you need to wear a jacket.

We walked from Morten's brother's apartment on Frederiksberg to the city center and on to Nyhavn. Having not been in the city for almost a year, you realize that Copenhagen is actually a very scenic city.

Not only is it beautiful, it is also modern and contemporary due to the massive amount of new architecture, here the Copenhagen Opera House designed by Henning Larsen.

We finally made it to our friends apartment near Langelinie. We did not feel like walking another step that day so after a drink on the balcony we went to a nice italian place for dinner.

That's the end of the holiday photo album. We did eventually make it back to Basel, celebrating the last holiday by a swim in the Rhine of which we do not have any images. Thanks to everyone who offered their help and a bed to sleep in, thanks to the Spenish delegation in Keuruu and the sun for being our for almost all of the holiday period.
