optician and a sony tv

After the optician

pasted up graffiti

my daughter has perfect eyesight so we went to look for a tv repair shop (her 10 year old sony is worn out) but the business no longer existed when we got there

my daughter snapped me when I stopped to admire this door

faintly me and Manja

Nine Small Homes no more tobacco

the Hotel has no elevator and therefore only two stars, and in the reception at Classensgade there are free Internet access and telefax. .
Hotel 9 Smaa Hjem A/S is very different from other Hotels. It is based on long-term renting with all the facilities needed for that, such as kitchen and laundry facilities. You can also choose to stay in a Hotel Apartment with own kitchen, bathroom and toilet. All the rooms are with direct telephone line and a colour TV.

Willemosegade is graced by impressive porches
You can imagine sitting on the balcony from lunch to sunset and eating or relaxing

I missed the enameled sign for 54 A B C D

Østerbrogade number 56 A B C D is such a prestige filled address that this side street has no name
ABC street ABC-gade or more correctly Østerbrogade 54a 54b 54c 54d
with the sun in my eyse I can not see what I am shooting

well not really - some child has erased the P of the 'OSTKASSE P'ost box
These were designed in Berlin for ease of use with the mail release door underneath, and the letters falling into the hooked on postman's sack on collection.
The only disadvantage of this pressed metal construction is that they can be blown apart at the seams by fireworks on New Years Eve.

On my way from BRUMLEBY walking to the cafe by the lake

towards the post office and Trianglen
