Kildegarden

The weather here has been so nice lately. It’s been 3 days since I’ve worn my coat.  Today was around 55, which might seem a little chilly, but it’s so sunny that it feels perfect!
Today we went to Herlev, Denmark, which is about 12 miles outside of Copenhagen. There is a farm there, Kildegarden, where you can get close to the animals.  We brought our own bread and carrots to feed the animals.
On the website it just said they had goats and sheep, but when we got there they also had cows and chickens.  We had to walk quite a ways to get to the farm and we passed a bunch of horses too. We got to see all kinds of animals!

I think Pearl’s favorite part was the chickens, she chased them all over the place.  There was a whole swarm of them and they would crowd around until you would drop a crumb.

I found out the hard way that the fence surrounding the goats was electric.  Ouch!

On our way out of the farm we found this little black lamb that escaped from the fence. Seth was going to put him back, but then he hopped over the fence all on his own.

The weather was perfect.
We all had such a great time at the farm.
…..and it was free.

Tonight for dinner we went to a great Indian restaurant that is very close to our apartment.

We walked around a little bit after dinner. That’s what’s so nice about this city, you can walk to so many shops and restaurants.
It was getting about bedtime for Pearl, so we headed back. I have been wanting to go to the pool at our apartment, and tonight seemed perfect.
If you’re wondering why my hair is still dry after swimming for almost an hour, it’s because I was forced to wear a swim-cap. It’s a rule, apparently.
Also, I am quickly learning that the Scandinavians are VERY comfortable with nudity. Full blown nudity, everywhere.
