From 16 till 21 August 2007 I went to Copenhagen in Denmark. The weather was cold, but I had plenty of sun already this year.
I went there to visit some friends. Of course I did a bit of wandering around. Not much though.
To see where this photo was taken exactly, have a look at the interactive map and zoom in and out for a better overview.
This statue of the Little Mermaid sits on a rock in the Copenhagen harbour in Churchill Park. This small and unimposing statue is a symbol of Copenhagen, and a major tourist attraction.
The statue was commissioned in 1909 by Carl Jacobsen, son of the founder of Carlsberg, after he had been fascinated by a ballet about the fairytale. The sculptor Edward Eriksen created the statue, which was unveiled on 23 August 1913. He used his wife Eline Eriksen as the model.
And of course I, Youssouf, had to have my picture taken with this small but beautiful landmark. Here I am, with the statue in the back.
