Yesterday was the 16th anniversary of my mother’s death, and as usual, I am in 
Copenhagen for  a few days at this time. My sister also has come from Poland, 
so that we could visit our mother’s grave together yesterday, fulfilling a 
promise made to each other 16 years ago. But it is not all about gloom and 
remembrance. I am also spending time with friends and enjoying this great city.
So yesterday morning I went for a long walk in Langeline, the park which houses 
the Little Mermaid, and adjacent 19th military installations known as 
Kastellet; those fortifications were never used in war, and today they form 
part of a great green oasis close to the centre of Copenhagen. Four images from 
my walk.

A morning commute that is guaranteed to give a good start to the day:

Fortification turned into jogging trail:

Next to Kastellet is Churchill Park, a place where Denmark honours its fallen 
during World War II and expresses its gratitude to the country and the leader 
that liberated us in 1945. This is a memorial to Danish soldiers killed during 
the war, both in Denmark and in Allied service:

And here is a quiet corner of Churchill Park, with a buste of the great man, 
erected in 1955 for the 10th anniversary of Denmark’s liberation:

Much more to come.
