CBS library

Copenhagen Business School Library

@CBScph

The library photo on the Copenhagen Business School page has always bugged me for some, unknown reason. So this year I decided to try creating my own version.

Today we are celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the International Summer University Program (ISUP). I’ve been fortunate to participate in six of those years with a first time of 11 years ago.

House in the Carlsberg Brewery neighborhood

After Niels Bohr won the Nobel Prize in 1922, the Carlsberg Brewery gave him a gift. The gift was a house located near the brewery with a direct pipeline to the brewery so that Bohr had free beer on tap whenever he wanted.

This house probably wasn’t Bohr’s house, but it is in that neighborhood. There are some amazing houses in this neighborhood (between the Carlsberg and Valby Stations on the north side of the tracks). I rode my bike through this neighborhood at least once a day this past summer as my apartment was next to this location.

4th of July parade in Copenhagen

OK, so the title is misleading. There is no 4th of July parade in Copenhagen. However, on my way out of my apartment this morning (I live by the Carlsberg Brewery) I met the above scene, as I have many times before, and it made me think of the parades going on back home in the USA.

If you take a tour of Carlsberg between 12:30 and 14:30 you can ride in one of the horse-drawn carriages at no additional charge. You may pass me on my bike if you do it during the next four weeks. These aren’t the Budweiser Clydesdales. I think Carlsberg has been using horses longer actually. These are Jutland horses, just as beautiful but not as big.

Nine years ago, we had a fun experience on American Independence Day at Tivoli. I guess that means this blog is about to have its 10-year anniversary.

5 more weeks…

…and I’ll be boarding a plane for Denmark. Today’s photo comes from my first summer in Denmark, 2008.

One of the great things about Copenhagen is you can ride a bike anywhere. There are no hills, and the streets have great bike lanes. The downside is when you get caught in a rain storm. I took today’s photo at the Carlsberg Brewery (in Frederiksberg) while waiting for the rain to let up. It didn’t, and I eventually had to head out through the storm. I got drenched, but it was still a good day.

My Copenhagen “back yard”

Copenhagen is a series of seemingly never-ending five and six story apartment buildings. From the street you would never know that inside them all exist a courtyard or common area for the residents. Today’s photo is of the courtyard in my second apartment in Copenhagen (2011). There would typically be a family or two barbecuing in this location on most evenings.
