2020 Denmark

Hello to 2020 with news from Copenhagen.

In the time of coronavirus my priest suggested I read the journals of Andersen twelve volumes first volume more than 500 pages. I found the books at this bookstore in downtown Copenhagen. Usually the street is very busy but with corona virus people are not going out.

Last night our Prime Minister said that the statistics in Denmark looked good and that if we keep on the same path she will open up Denmark again gradually after Easter that is in two weeks time so today there were more people in the streets you can see from this picture if you compare with the first photo it is the same street.
The tower in normal times you can go up the tower and enjoy a panoramic view of Copenhagen but today it was not possible too bad
This is how the Frederiksberg park entrance looks today. You can see people and bikes it seems almost like a normal day. We wonder if we did not start talking of opening again too early.
In the park there are instructions on where to go also that joggers are not allowed.
but here is one jogger and he was not the only one.
Beautiful park even though today was not sunny
View of the zoo

It was April fool’s day but I did not thinnk of any prank in these corona times
Instead I preferred to photograph the police instructions of social distance
Today was a sunny day again so I went to Statens Museum for Kunst which was closed of course but there is a nice garden around the museum. The museum is so big i did not photograph the whole building
