Freja and Magne; the old town
On May 2nd, we took the kids over to see the Old Town. They don't give a toss about the old buildings, but there was an open event with old fashioned stuff for kids to see, not least volunteers in period costume and a play area with the sorts of enterainments children had over a hundred years ago. Over the course of the week end, there had been various events staged, but by the time we got there on Sunday afternoon, most everything was over, so we found the streets half empty, though there was still plenty to look at. Both the kids enjoyed the play area and Freja was over joyed to get a big red and white striped lollipop. It was so big it lasted her three days. I didn't have my camera with me, so I took these pictures with my phone.
The Old Town of Aarhus is one of the biggest museums in Denmark, and with its central location, quite easy to reach (its about 1km from we we live). Mette is currently working there as a seamstress and so we had gratis entry. I've been many times, not least because I find a lot of inspiration for my models from the buildings.
