Copenhagen lakes

My place this year, near Valby Station, is great. However, I really miss being near Copenhagen’s lakes. I’ve only seen them a few times this year. I saw them nearly everyday during the prior three summers I spent in Copenhagen.

Today’s photo comes from a “trip” I took to central Copenhagen last week to eat ramen at Slurp Ramen Joint.

“Power and the Glory” was one of my go-to albums from 1983 until the mid-90s. I still put it on a few times a year. Another rush of seeing a band I hadn’t seen since the 1980s in 2017.

Most of the band members I saw live with Sanctuary in 1990 are still with the band. Lots of fun doing time travel like this 27+ years later.

@AmonAmarthBand #JOMSVIKING #geflemetalfestival #geflemetal

A little over nine years after seeing Amon Amarth for the first time, in Sweden, I was fortunate to see them again. They put on a bigger and better performance every time I go to one of their shows. It’s safe to say that the crowd was larger and more into Amon Amarth than for anyone else at this year’s Gefle Metal Festival.

Coincidentally, I was staying at an Airbnb in Gavle and someone formerly affiliated with the band happened to be staying there too. This person offered me a ride back to Stockholm after the festival. On that car ride south to Stockholm we passed a car with a Negative Self bumper sticker on it. That reminded me that I met a couple of guys at the festival (in bandanas in the front row for Testament) who said they were big fans of Negative Self and who encouraged me to check them out. I emailed them to see if it was them we passed and it was! A small world indeed.

Stockholm’s Old Town

Stockholm's Old Town

Stockholm, Sweden’s Old Town (Gamla stan) was too crowded this past Sunday afternoon. Once the rain began, the tourists cleared out, and it became a very lovely place.
