Day 65: Culinary Constellations

Today was a delightful blend of culinary exploration and cultural immersion. The rain in Copenhagen added a certain charm to the city's cobblestone streets, making the indoors even more inviting. I decided to attend a traditional Danish cooking class, a decision I'm truly pleased with. The instructor, a jovial Danish lady named Freja, welcomed us with a warm smile and introduced us to the world of smørrebrød and frikadeller.

As we chopped, mixed, and cooked, Freja shared stories of her childhood, of family gatherings around the dining table, and of the significance of these dishes in Danish culture. The camaraderie among the participants was palpable. We laughed at our culinary misadventures and cheered each other on. By the end of the session, the aroma of freshly cooked food filled the room, and we all sat down to enjoy the fruits of our labour. The smørrebrød, with its assortment of toppings on rye bread, was a delightful explosion of flavours, while the frikadeller (meatballs) were tender and juicy.

As I walked back to my accommodation, the rain had reduced to a drizzle, and the city lights reflected beautifully on the wet streets. The day, though simple, felt rich in experiences. It's days like these that remind me of the beauty of travel - it's not just about the places but the people and the shared moments.

Looking forward to what tomorrow brings in this beautiful city.
