Flashback Friday

Pick a myth, any myth

Today’s photo comes from a stroll through Christiania eight years ago.

After seeing the above, I went in for a closer look. Creepy. Seemed more like a nightmare than a dream world.

Not far from the drug deals, and roaming dogs doing their business wherever they please, you can find pieces of the utopia that Christiania was intended to be.

My prior posts on Christiania are some of the most frequently visited on the blog. I’m not sure why. In any event, it took me a while to revisit Christiania. I didn’t end up going until my last week in Copenhagen, three years after my first encounter with the place.

The guidebooks all say go visit Christiania, but nearly everyone that does check out Christiania (as a tourist not looking for pot) is disappointed. The place is pretty ugly and a bit scary when you enter through the main entrance. However, if you keep going there are some interesting and even beautiful things to see.

I’ll cover the new marijuana scene (which is very different than three years ago) in a future entry.
