Skål!

First thing we see last night after stepping off our plane in Copenhagen is this ad for flights to Seattle, though we've hardly been away long enough to feel homesick... We then took the Metro to The Square hotel, where we've since been adjusting to our jetlag.

Today we hiked around the city center, and then looked down on it all from the Rundetaarn. Above is Mrs. Truitt, taking it all in.

Here's another elevated view, this one from from the top of the Ballongyngen, a ferris wheel at the awesome Tivoli Gardens, open for business since 1843 (!). Beyond the trees is the SAS Hotel, where this morning we had their killer breakfast buffet.

Great Odin's raven!

That's some goofy Viking sculpture at Tivoli. We also rode the cool old wooden Rutschebanen roller coaster, which has been in near-continuous operation since 1914, and had the first of what will likely be many open-faced sandwiches.

You can never wash your hands too many times at any amusement park -- here Eliza cleans up in the elephant sink...

...And here she stands outside some weird-looking ride.

I've been totally stoked about Copenhagen's free city bikes program, but the few we've found so far have all been broken and unusable. Instead, we had to hike to dinner at BioMio, which was more or less worth the trip.

Skål!
