I was in Copenhagen last October teaching for a month at Mysore Yoga Copenhagen and Sesam had his second ultrasound at Rigshospitalet. I am back now on maternity leave while Petri teaches his annual spring workshop at Mikko’s place. It’s funny not to leave for the shala at half past five in the morning, but it’s great to be back in this amazing city, especially during spring time! It was little Sesam’s second yoga trip and first airplane ride. He was a little fussy before taking off. Luckily, after he drank some milk, he slept throughout! Yes! I kind of went crazy-inspired with the pictures, so this will be a photo blog about the random and awesome things I saw about town! 🙂

First up, food! If you are in the Nørrebro area, you must stop by Grød, a humble little basement eatery, for porridge and risotto. It’s a simple concept and it’s seriously good. They use seasonal ingredients, so we drank rhubarb lemonade and ate a delicious rhubarb compote dessert porridge. They also use lots of skyr, that creamy Icelandic yoghurt…yum! Two things: Their cookbook is available for sale, but it’s in Danish and the service is not too quick, so be sure you have enough time to spare!

If there is one street I could happily spend an afternoon walking along, it would be Jægersborggade. In addition to Grød, there are a bunch of interesting little shops, boutiques and cafes. Here are some street shots to capture the eco-bohemian flair…

Above and below: This shop would have been a slam dunk, what with the cool Welcome to Jam Rock hat and Hustle Athletic sweatshirt on display…(Mother’s Day gift, anyone?) Unfortunately, they were never open during the times listed on the door. Lame! 😦

At one end of Jægersborggade, you will find the large city cemetery where H.C Anderson and Søren Kierkegaard, among others, are buried. I must say, it’s tremendously beautiful to visit a quiet place of eternal rest when the verdant spring atmosphere is blooming with fresh life…

Stay blessed and enjoy the life you live. Om!
