Polite, charming ladies :)

What a breath of fresh air.. Scandinavians in general struck me as very patient & polite :) I just loved the locals.

The lovely canal tours

This is real fun. We see all the new and old buildings, other boats passing, and ourselves pass through canals, some so low that we have to sit down ;)

The sweet, defenceless Mermaid

Some call it a tourist trap, maybe because it is slightly out of the way.

But I had a soft spot for the modest, defenceless lady!

I caught the bus from the main square & set-off in search of her.

We had seen her the day before via the boat tour, but that was from a distance & a rear angle, with a large crowd around her.

I was not disappointed, as we walked through a harbour area with nice new developments, then through a pebbled area, and finally she was in our sights.

Crowds had thinned out, so she was all 'mine' for a while ;) I thought of wading in, but left it. I liked the few minutes I spent there.

    It was like trying to find 'where's Wally', for a while - such a practised pose she just blends into the backdrop!

    So "Bad" brushes are 39 Kroner, how much is a "good" brush. Greetings from a guy in Yemen who has tasted camel meat... (as per your earlier comment)

    You are right about the mermaid, she's so sweet, why should people harm her?
