It´s nice to be Norwegian in Denmark

As usual this time of the year we spent some days in Copenhagen for experiencing the hospitality given by our neighbors to the south: the Danes. It is always nice to be a Norwegian in Denmark.
One of my favorite activities in Copenhagen is to enjoy a Danish Breakfast (lunch). This "Apoteker-anretning" (dish) to a prize of 139 dkk together with beer and "Ålborg Taffel". This picture could indicate that my concern after the lunch was that the dish became much for a person concerned with weight loss (minus 12 kg since October 2009), but as usual it is nice to freak out now and then.I am not sure if these medical students from South America
UPDATE!!!
I received this comment and want to add my post in accordance to this:
Hi,
My name is Carla and I'm writing to you about the foto with the medicine students from South America wich they are not. They are from Portugal, University of Coimbra. Unless all the students are from South America studying in Portugal...
Being a Portuguese myself, living in London, England and had studied in Coimbra I couldn't just not write to you,sorry but we Portuguese (and I think I can speak for the country) do not like to be mistaken neither for the Spanish or the South Americans, they are the cousins (way to say it). We are a small country very often mistaken all over the world for one of Spain's provinces wich we are not.
Please do not misunderstand what I'm trying to say, I've got the best of the intentions towards you and your blog which I must say I follow and I like it very much! It's inspiring,simple but brilliant! Thanks for sharing. And really, I don't care about their singing or way of life while at University, it's not about them or the nice people from Spain and South America it's about a small country with great history and humble people called Portugal.

Thanks,
SORRY Carla, I normally do not comment comments, but this just had to be correct
:)
were freaking out, but their music performance in Copenhagen´s most busy shopping district, was more than the "sound" of the Rose of Donau on accordion as we have here performed by beggars in Oslo.
Europe is also visual in Copenhagen these days. A huge map on the EU-building close to Nyhavn is covered by plants typical from the member countries. (Europe in Bloom)And plants from Norway? only if we have same as those in Sweden and/or Finland.

I like the idea of European plants on the side of the building - so what do they have for the UK - roses, heather, thistles, ivy?
