Downtown Copenhagen

This building is typical of downtown Copenhagen. Three to five stories high buildings, often with shops at ground level. This particular building is located in the part of town called Vesterbro. It is right next to the main train station (danish: Københavns Hovedbanegård).
The text on the building reads Kooperationens Hus (english: House of Cooperation), and it houses several different organisations related to labour organisations/unions and the socialdemocratic movement.

A hotdog with everything, please

The hotdog stand (danish: pølsevogn) is seen in many locations throughout the cities. On the menu is various hotdogs, hamburgers, rib burgers, haps dogs, different types of sausages, where the red one is very popular.
Some of the hotdog stands have wheels and a small motor attached. The owner walks and steers the hotdog stand as the motor pulls it.
This particular picture was shot outside the main station in Copenhagen. Across the street you see Tivoli, although not very obvious from this angle.

Snowcovered tree

Winter has it's price. Butts are freezing off, and the scenery gets covered with that white fluffy stuff. Snow, it's called in some places (danish: sne). This tree is located almost outside our door. The blue dome is a container to glass (bottles, jars etc.) for recycling. The sign says "Children Playing".

Icy tree

Last few days of snow and ice has decorated the trees with ice glazing. It looks fantastic, what is not funny is trying to recover the car from underneath a thick layer of ice :-) Enjoy the the nice picture of the frozen tree, while I save up for some defrost for next payday.

Long and winding road

Out in the open country we have roads like these with fields all around and the occasional shrubbery or tree.

These red berries are seen in a lot of places. They make a nice contrast to the sometimes boring gray/brown/green shrubberies along the roads in the neighbourhood.
