More Copenhagen!

Our Hotel-The First Mayfair
We stayed in Copenhagen for 2.5 days, we had wonderful weather, nice and sunny, we walked the streets took a bus and harbor tour, we saw The Round Tower, Rosenborg Castle, Tivioli Gardens and so much more!
The Round Tower

Rosenborg Castle

Oh, we got to see the crowned jewels, they were on exhibition there!
We had an amazing dinner at Les Troi Cochons. It took about 3 hours to eat, they take their time there, no cell phones out, everyone talks to each other, they get dressed up for dinners, it was so nice to see, makes me cringe to go back to eating in the states.
The meal started with appetizers, then soup and salad, then the main course, then dessert and espressos...it was fabulous. We will never forget it! All the freshest of ingredients!
The mermaid, with about 100 tourists climbing all over her!

The harbor tour from the hop on hop off bus was a highlight, we cruised for a good 1.5 hours. We saw where people live right on the canals with their boats, so beautiful. We also saw the Little Mermaid, unfortunately, this was our biggest disappointment, Christy and I are water signs, and we love the mermaids and anchors and etc...but there were so many people running around this and climbing on it and just being rude and disrespectful. They should have a viewing platform and you can take a picture and move on, but no, it was not a good experience, but at least we can say we saw her in person!

Saturday arrived and we got to the pier, and boarded the ship, that evening we had a wonderful meal in the dining room, table 108, Melvin and Ni were the wait staff for us, nice people, they spoiled us rotten every night at dinner!

Next stop Stockholm, Sweden!

At least the Crown Jewels were prettier than the Mermaid. I know how you were looking forward to her. I love this tour of yours!

Loved the description of the dinner. I also got disappointed with that mermaid, but everything else makes up for it.
