Michelin star restaurant across the street

Kokkeriet

@Kokkeriet

My neighbor this year is Kokkeriet, a relatively inexpensive restaurant by Michelin standards that I have yet to sample. I have been to Vesterbro Vinstue twice this year, and those bills combined were less than half the cost of one visit to Kokkeriet so that’s the main reason.

My Nyboder neighborhood

Nyboder

I’m loving my neighborhood this year in Copenhagen. There is beauty around every corner.

Happy Summer Solstice!

View from my bedroom window in Copenhagen after 10 p.m. on summer solstice

This was the scene well after 10 p.m. last night out my bedroom window for the solstice. I’ll get to watch the sky change behind this Nyboder backdrop for the next five weeks. Some of these buildings were built in the 1600s and 1700s by Christian IV. The church on the left is St. Paul’s and the one on the right is the Marble Church.

I’ll be back in Copenhagen in less than four months. Today’s photo comes from a picnic we had on a boat a couple summers ago. The weather was supreme.

Goal!

FCK soccer goal

Rasmus Falk scores a goal for F.C. Kobenhavn

This past summer I went to my third professional soccer match. All three were in Copenhagen. All three were blowouts in favor of the home team. All three were at a mostly empty Parken Stadium.

I don’t really understand how European soccer works, but F.C. Copenhagen won the Danish Superliga and the Danish Cup in the prior year and the Danish Superliga again before I saw this game. Maybe those games are better attended.

By the time I’m in Denmark in the middle of summer things have moved on to the UEFA Europa League, in which FCK dominates in the early rounds and gets crushed in later rounds. I’m only there for the early rounds. On this night, FCK beat the Crusaders F.C. (Belfast, Ireland) 6-0.
