Seen at Aalborg Airport

First Sign.



Advertisements for Danes.

The sign says (translated from Danish to English):

Copenhagen. Large City Vacation. Now or Never. Playful. New Culture. The Good Life. Experiences.Do It. Your Time. Good Friends. Freedom. Los Angeles. Travel.

But. The highlighted letters spell out other words:

Køb noget der gør dig rigere

Buy something that (will) make you richer. – a vacation, perhaps?



Just an American lost in Denmark. The past few weeks being back in the good old USA. It is like Aliens have taken over my mind, changing it from what I knew to what I know. It might be the heat, or it might be the influence of hearing English 24 hours a day, but whatever the cause, it is only temporary while dealing with this time and space.
