Day 3 - Please, god, no more rain!

So Copenhagen is a small town. You can walk pretty much everywhere that there´s stuff to see in 15 minutes or less. Which is great, but it also means that you walk. Everywhere. In the rain. So after 2.5 days of sightseeing, my poor feet are very, very tired and my poor jeans are very, very wet. Today, I saw the changing of the guards at Amalienbourg Palace (lame!), grabbed falafel for lunch (tasty!), and toured the Glyptotek for a few hours (colorful!). The Roman portrait gallery is closed (lame!), but the Glyptotek itself is quite lovely. Shot through the National Museum in an hour (got yelled at - lame!). Then slogged through the rain to get pics of the graves of Kierkegård, H.C. Andersen, and Niels Bohr (wet and cold!).

Highlights of the day:
1) Seeing Andy Samberg walking down the Strøget. I don´t know why he´s in Copenhagen, but I swear to god it was him. There aren´t a lot of Danes who look like that.
2) Finding the dried fruit stand, where I bought dried strawberries, ginger, cantaloupe, and kiwi. Dried kiwi is quite good.
3) Chimichanga for dinner at the Taco Bar. It was bland, but it was the only Mexican food I´ve had in over 6 months. And therefore it was good.
