This Friday I visited the New Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark known for the statue of the Little Mermaid. I came to Copenhagen very early in the morning.
I had dropped my son off at Copenhagen Airport for a transatlantic flight. Copenhagen was still asleep.
Baresso, my favorite coffee shop, opened at 7.30 a.m. So. I spent some time sightseeing before breakfast.
The Royal Castle, Amalienborg was wrapped.
The Parliament, Christiansborg was wrapped.
The City Hall was wrapped.
I have decided not to ask.
I found Carlsberg's web site, and the title was: Carlsberg.com - Probably the Best Website in the World.
I asked friends in New York, in Paris, and in Tokyo.

an awful lot of money.
