Hans Christian Andersen Statue in RĂ„dhuspladsen (City Hall Square), Copenhagen, Denmark. Created by Henry Luckow Nielsen (1902-1992) in 1961. I haven’t been able to find much information about the sculptor.

This was taken back in 2005. Our elder daughter and her family lived in Copenhagen for several years and we went to visit them quite a lot. I was also travelling for business to Copenhagen at that time and was able to see them even more frequently.

I have lots of memories of Copenhagen – many of them good, some of them not so good. I have good memories of walking in the parks, visiting the museums, dinner (with lots of beer) in Nyhaven after a strenuous meeting, a performance of Tannhauser at the Opera, full family get togethers over Christmas and New Year. Not so pleasant memories all relate to Copenhagen in Winter. It’s frigid, dark in the middle of the afternoon and I always seemed to get sick whenever we went there in Winter.

The good memories far outweigh the bad though.
