Day 6: Kristiana goes to Christiania

Friday, August 17, 2012

Have you read the Chronicles of Narnia? Well, I did as a kid, and that's what the mystique that Freetown Christiania in Copenhagen has been for me for the past five or so years. It was my Narnia.  I heard about the neighborhood of Christiania, here in Copenhagen, from a guy who visited my Airstream one year at open studios in San Francisco. He picked up my business card, read my name, and said, "You must go to Christiania in Denmark". And so my goal was set. Well, yesterday I finally visited Christiania for Day 6 of my inspiration vacation in Denmark. No photos are allowed on the inside of Christiania, and I don't like to step on toes, so this collage of images is from my journey starting in the apartment where I'm staying, to and from, as well as the walls and little discoveries around Christiania. I'm glad I went. As I ate at the vegetarian restaurant in the town (delicious, by the way), I thought to myself, "A goal and dream have been fufilled, a mystery unveiled". Cheers to you, Christiania!
