Christiania - Copenhagen

During our day in the city on bicycles, we went to Christiania - a commune that is separate from the rest of Copenhagen... as it is also referred to as "Freetown Christiania"...and well-known for its use and sale of marijuana. It was interesting to go to this area and there is only one section that sells the drug... it felt touristy and weird to me... but I can appreciate this commune for many reasons and enjoyed seeing it. I really liked walking along a path to a lake, some houses, and even a school for the children that live here! A nice break from the lovely city.

The Wikipedia article about Freetown Christiania is interesting to read.

This would be the perrrrfect reading nook!

This poem reads:
All men dream but not equally -- those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was all vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes and make it possible.

On the side of the school (with a small playground and beachfront area!)

Gooooorgeous and the right time of day for a visit:

Jaime, enjoying the music   : )
