Copenhagen and the Tycho Brahe Planetarium

 On my sweltering, bag-toting walk to the Københavns Hovedbanegård (Copenhagen Central Train Station), I passed by the spectacular Tycho Brahe planetarium.  I took a break here because I was so hot and discovered that behind it was a wee piece of canal. Unfortunately it was rather full of algae because of the heat and lack of rain, but I had a few words of commiseration with a coot and a black-headed gull.
Further along the road a woman stopped me and asked if I knew where the station was, so we ended up walking together for the ten minutes.  She was born in Germany, had a Phd in Anthropology from a prestigious North American university, and lived and lectured in New York.  She loved to come back regularly and travel in Europe. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting her, even though it was only briefly.

The station itself is a rather interesting building too.

I rather liked these man-hole covers. I should have taken a rubbing.

I liked the clean lines of the mosaic on the planetarium.
