We went to the Circus!

March 29, 2009

We went to the circus again. This time we went with Ruth, Don, Ali, and Peter from Seattle, and Kati and Johanna from Estonia. It wasn’t quite as good as the last one–no penguins 😦  But it was still fun to go with friends.

It’s all right ….

From one of my favorite songs, and a view through our winter-and-roof-repair filthy window looking to the east at 6:58am this morning. We now have nearly 12 hours of sunlight each day.

Little darling
It’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling
It feels like years since it’s been here

Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right

Little darling
The smiles returning to the faces
Little darling
I seems like years since it’s been here

Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right

Within the next month, Copenhageners will emerge from their apartments, shedding their chrysalis of furs, scarves, hats, and inhibitions to bask in the tepid warmth of the northern spring.

But for now, at 3pm, it’s snowing. Welcome to March in Denmark!
