It was our last day in Copenhagen, the town we have spent a month living in. We were sad, and would miss some of the great things we had grown to love there. Nils Staerk and his people had really made our stay wonderful with their help. We will be missing our beautiful walks in the streets filled with beautiful people...
We got dropped off in the central station and discovered that our sleeper-train had been in an accident somewhere along the route and they placed us on some other MUCH less equipped train, and informed us that we would be re-routed at 5 AM in some town called 'Furby' and put onto another train so we could catch our connection in Basel, Switzerland.
This is a shot from 5 AM, we are all geared up and totally bumming. We were supposed to be sleeping until we got to Basel, but instead we were on some train to rug-Munchen (Munich), and getting off in Furby.
I mean 'Fulda.'
The train they put us on was a sleeper like we expected. I was ready to get back to sleep.
Deanna was already there. We got our next connection in Basel, and were off to Milan via the Swiss Alps. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of the Matterhorn
At one of the stops, I got off and took a walk on the platform. Deanna saw me outside and freaked! If the train took off with me outside, she would be screwed.
The ride was amazing. So many breathtaking scenes of mountain lakes, castles, churches, picture-book perfect mountain villages, waterfalls from the melting snow, and crazy bridges... We got into Bologna
and checked into our hotel, and were starving so walked into downtown.
The streets of Bologna were ablaze with people honking horns and waving flags. The city center was completely trashed.
Somewhere, and Indian is crying. The Bologna soccer team had advanced into a higher bracket or something, and people were very happy about it, and drunk. By the time we were done eating (Amazing, and simple!) the were cleaning
the streets up, and by cleaning I mean driving over broken bottles.
And to top off a crazy long day, we found a Gelateria that offered Soy-Gelato. Deanna was very happy.
On Tuesday, I will be quality checking at the printer for my book, Deformer
. You can see some more installation shots from my show in Copenhagen at Nils Staerk.dk
