Soccer game

Yesterday we went to the F. C. Kobenhavn soccer game. They played against the Irish Cliftonville football (soccer) team. We found out the F.C. stands for Football Club. We sat in a seat that was surrounded by a bunch of drunk people who had too much alcohol in them too pay attention to the game. They were cheering the whole time. F. C. Kobenhavn smoked the Irish team 7-0.

Christiania

Christiania is this hippie town in Copenhagen that we went to. We went with my dad’s work. They gave us a guided tour by a man who lives there. They aren’t alowed to build new houses there so they use old goverment buildings. There is a lot of graffiti, even more than in the rest of Copenhagen. Some of the graffiti was really cool and cartoony though.

There is one street that you aren’t alowed to take pictures of because that is where all of the drug dealers are. All the playgrounds are all recycled with stuff like piano insides and tires. They are really into some German builders who come there and sometimes live there. I won’t be living there anytime soon though because Christiania has a really long waiting list for new residents.

National Art Museum – Copenhagen

When we went to the art muesum we did a lot of fun stuff, but the things I liked the most are these:

1. We went to a kids art camp that you could paint, draw, water color, build, glue gun and other cool stuff. Ryan and I had so much fun, we came the next day too, while our parents watched a jazz concert. I painted a picture of a flower close up and built a “dream ladder.” They called it dream ladder and what it was is you would make a doll-sized ladder and put your dream on the top. It could be your dream when you grow up or a dream you had in your sleep. I did the dream when you grow up, because I have been having some really strange dreams lately. The lady that worked there was really nice and gave you tips and helped you out. We had a lot of fun!!!

2. We went into a room where there were spot lights that kept on moving around, music, and a slide show of random people dancing. Since nobody was in there my mom, Ryan and I broke out dancing and when other people came in, we could not help it, we just could not stop dancing!

3. There was a little golden retriever stuffed animal in the middle of one of the rooms with paintings. He had jester shoes and a french hat with a feather sticking out of it. There were other clothes on a shelf that you could dress him up in. So I dressed him up as an old fashion movie star. Ryan finished the last touch; he added dark black sun glasses and the dog was all set!!!

We had a really good day full of fun.

Thorvaldsens Museum

Yesterday we went to Thorvaldsen Museum which is a whole museum with one sculpter’s works. They had really cool virtual tour guide things which when you point at sensors near statues it will tell you all about the statue. Most of the statues were of Greek or Roman myths. So the guide tells you some myths as well. I thought it was one of the most fun museums I’ve been to.

Afterwards we went to the bibliotek, which we thought was a huge public library but found out it was a museum where you picked up library books that you ordered online. After that we found the real public library and got a card. We now have lots of English books (most are probaly from England). We got home just in time to go to the Dansk Design Center.
