Visiting Denmark this week, and taking pictures of course. Yesterday morning I walked to the local bakery with my friend. Danish bakeries are the best in the world. Traditionally they were family businesses, with the father baking the bread in the wee hours of the morning, and then leaving the shop in the hands of his wife and a usually also a young girl to help out. In fact, the traditional name of the girl selling bread in a bakery is "bagerjomfru", literally translated "baker virgin". I don't know if this one is a virgin (didn't ask...) but the bread we bought was delicious in any event:
