Warming Roskilde

Warming up
In the last two days a new event, a new winterfestival called Ånd & Viden, Spirit & Knowledge, has taken place in Rsokilde. I was there before it was dark, but something was diffent. The intention was to warm Roskilde by coals. Here you see a man lightening the coals at Hestetorvet. The containers was placed every 50 meters.

What an idea! I would stand over one of those to warm up.

Funny to see in English "Bagels to go."

Is using a propane tank and a flame thrower considered cheating?

I loved the Bagel sign too...

Poor chap looks cold. I think he could do with a 'varm drik' if that is what I think it is.

I would have liked to visit your festival. Once I visited the cathedral where the kings (and queens) are buried.

I just use Kerosene, but this has possibilities of BBQ! Mmmmm.

Thank you all for the comments. A "varm drik" is a "warm drink". Funny that the "Bagels to go" was noticed. I didn't saw it before you told me about it. It is very usual to use English words in Denmark - many shops have "sale" instead of "udsalg". They probably hope to sell more...
I shall take a look at the Bagels another day - and report!
