Late Evening in Copenhagen

First we want everyone to know we are safe and left Iceland today just before the earthquake. If you haven’t heard, there was 6.2 earthquake just south of Reykjavik this afternoon. I forgot to mention in the previous entry that the area of Iceland south of Reykjavik to the Airport looks very much like the area of Craters-of-the-Moon in central Idaho. The bulging lava fields cover the landscape all the way to the shore. As we were riding the bus through that area today and saw the massive cracks in the surface, I wondered out loud how frequently they had earthquakes. Our flight departed on time at 1:15 PM local time.
Where are we
Where are we again?

Nyhavn Street
Ah, we are in Copenhagen.

Nyhavn Street South
Great views of the sidewalk cafes and ships on Nyhavn Street.
Nyhavn Street North

We had our only dinner in Copenhagen this evening after 9PM at one of those sidewalk cafes. The photo shows the wonderful grilled salmon from the Skipperkroen restaurant – about $50.

We enjoyed some street musicians playing near the restaurant and you can see a 10 second clip below:

Amalienborg Palace
After dinner, we walked to the Amalienborg Palace. This picture was taken with available light at 9:28 PM

Palace Guard
Finally Kenny snapped this one after coaxing one of the palace guards to pose.
