Oh, and about the weird headwear…

23. marts 2011 – The Old Town

DISCLAIMER: I do not possess any rights concerning the music. Nor am I making any money on this. This is purely a hobby and reproducing good memories. Just sayin’.

My mother came over for my birthday – and among other things, we went to The Old Town here in Aarhus.

What I can’t remember is how many times I had to repeat myself. But I had to repeat myself – several times! The woman behind the counter just looked confused and and asked, “Quoi?”. Then I pointed to the pile of croissants, and she exclaimed: “Aaaah, un croissant!” Oui, madame! Merci!

Enjoy the post.

Please Excuse the Pointing Gentile The girl at my local bakery gave me a nasty attitude yesterday. I don't typically wander into bakeries, so when I do I expect them to be full of wonder and delight.  Pastries are happy.  Always.   In fact, when I began to daydream in the middle of the workday about the possibilities in store for me there, I pictured dancing jelly donuts, danishes, and beau … Read More
