The Little Mermaid
Once at the statue I went down from the promenade onto the rocks and I did get close to the statue. It was just a matter of waiting patiently for everyone else to move away to get pictures.
We walked back to the church and the fountain through the park rather than along the promenade and now the crowds were even larger than before.
Down Ameliagade we could see even more crowds in the square that is flanked on four sides with palaces. We were too early for the changing of the guard as it was just 11 am. I was fascinated by the guards sauntering backwards and forwards and checking their watches or even their phones!
Nyvahn for lunch
Then we were back at Nyhavn where the canal emerged into open water. Walking back up Nyvahn we could hear shouting and at the end of the canal now there was a crowd of football supporters gathering with a strong police presence. From the stacks of cans they were clearly planning to be there for a while.
Across the road we headed for an ATM to get money for lunch. We were walking against a steady stream of Bromby supporters all heading for Nyvahn. Nearly everyone was carrying cases of beer. At a crossing I asked one guy with a tray of Diet Coke where was his beer? He told me, with the biggest smile, that all the cans were doctored with lots of vodka.
We stopped for lunch at the first restaurant on Nyvahn and sat outside. The Bronby fans were now letting off firecrackers, roman candles as well as yellow smoke bombs. We were sitting very close to the crowds but we had three policemen between them and us.
Lunch was an open sandwich accompanied by local beer
and lots chanting from the fans!
From inside the restaurant I took these images from the staircase windows.
Off to Christanshavn
After lunch we walked back down Nyvhan to cross over the bridge to go into the Christanshavn district of the city. The bridges were all raised when we arrived for boats to pass through.
Down Princessgade we came to the street art on the buildings to our left. Turning down the paths we were among what looked like old warehouses. On the walls there were lots of murals as we walked past.
