|Copenhagen Peace Watch outside Danish Parliament building Christianborg|
A steadily growing group of people who value peace has been standing, since October 19 2001 from early morning to late evening, all 7 days of the week, forming a peace watch outside Christianborg the Danish Parliament and government. Hate breeds hate.
After breakfast I went out and looked around it was cold the wind cut right through me. I went back in and put on a t shirt on top of my long sleeved top and also gloves, and warmed up. I went to the Old Town Square for the start of the walking tour by Sandeman walking tour I have used them in other cities. The guide set off at a break neck speed he said I can hope you all can keep up. I did keep up for quite awhile made it with them to the break area which was located in the main shopping street Stroeget and had an ice cream the break turned out to be longer than planned so he set off even faster I got stuck behind a truck turning around and also bikes kept getting in my way, I could see them in the distance then some crazy lady came at me screaming and I have no clue why and now I could barely see the group and decided to give up, I might add that several people quit way before I did. Some of the places we saw during the walk were the Dragon Fountain which has a bull fighting a dragon. The Stork fountain located in Amagertorv which was a present Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Louise for their Silver Wedding anniversary 1894.

I carried along the canal and the sun was coming out and it was starting to look s pretty. I decided to do the canal boat ride because a boat was leaving in a few minutes,it was a nice ride down the canals we saw the Little Mermaid but not close up I was going to get off the stop but it was so windy and it would be an hour wait for the next boat. On the way back the wind was so bad the water started blowing into the boat like rain so I quickly got out my seat which was in the front and uncovered and moved inside until it calmed down. I could see this very interesting building and I finally got close to it, the Old Stock Exchange Building. it is one of the oldest buildings (1625) in Copenhagen and it situated on the island of Slotsholmen and it was built by King Christian IV.
