Jag älskar Danmark! Var i Köpenhamn för Roskilde festival 1997.
(Swedish is my 3rd tongue)
Last time I was there in a small town called Koelling.
Wish I could go again soon

Honestly I feel a little ashamed by all the niceties said about Denmark. Being born in that country, and living there since I entered this world 75 years ago I do understand a lot of the observations so generously scattered in the articles.

Apparently there is no end to the positive vibrations, and yet -- and yet.
Besides a large group of old and lousy apartments in the capital, some even without a toilet, there are numerous things which can upset you.
No,no – I am not complaining of the excessive high taxes (second in the world only to Sweden) and the fact that you have the highest prices (together with Greece) on new cars (you pay for three cars to get one) and shell out gladly US$ 7,60/gal. of gas.
No, I would would point to the climate.
There is a general saying: "Sane people should not be living north of the Alps" - and it is correct - indeed.
Here in November: Switch off the light at 11 am and switch it on again at 1 p.m. Add to that, months of cloudy and humid weather with icy winds. No snow to speak of (as in Sweden) - but THEN suddenly:
Two (2) weeks at the end of May, with balmy weather which surpasses anything in this world. All misery gone. Welcome to Denmark - then !!!
