Whenever an inhospitable wind blows in Copenhagen,
the locals blame it on the Russians.
Well, the Russian wind was all over the city today, especially in Osterport.
When I arrived at the Osterport station - designed and built in 1897
– I had to reemploy the warm things I had with me:
my pashmina scarf became a skirt.
And I found . . . a Femilet pure new wool vest for DKK5 (1% of the normal price).
And I found a Bionicle LEGO beanie for my son-in-marriage (priceless). Enjoy Vince!
And I found a fur blanket for DKK100 (average DDK600).
And I found a Dean & White cashmere sweater for DKK15 or R10 (average price at second hand boutiques ₤35 or R600).
And I found an vintage handkerchief with handmade lace for my aunt Johanna. I try never to mail a letter to her without including a handkerchief from yesteryear.
On my way back to the station, I greeted the swans, geese and ducks at the Oster So or Eastern Lake.
