Christmas is over

Ducks

Today it is a normal day again. Christmas is over, the ducks has been eaten, the christmastree and the presents has been enjoyed, the christmastensions of the grandchildren has changed to relaxation - etc. Many people was not able to go all the way home or where they should be christmasevening. Especially Bornholm was closed because of snow.

Drawing of first car arriving at Roskilde

IMG_7535

Sometimes even libraries have too many book. In Roskilde you could buy a bag full of books for 20 kr, 3€ or 4$. I found one book with this drawing from 1897. The text is: Roskilde. The Automobile is arriving. Take a look at it, you will find many funny details. The old city hall - as shown yesterday - is also at this drawing. It is easy to find.

The book was about the history of Roskilde Amt (regional part of Denmark), which no longer exists.

Winter again in Roskilde

IMG_7995

After some months of absense, I am now back again. The only explanation is the psychological phenomenon called (in danish at least) to get away from something.
I have written a little about it: Getting away from doing.

Today is the first day in the winter - but here we have got lots of snow in november, which is rather unusual. I hope the plus-degrees returns again soon.
