Today, we started the visit to Copenhagen by taking the bus and walking up to the statue of the well-known statue of the Little Mermaid, crossing a military camp on the way. Some of us already knew that it was the symbol of Copenhagen. We took a series of pictures with it.

 Then we went up a whole street where there were art galleries and other craftsmen shops, and on our way, Mr. Duhoux gave us a lecture on copper oxydation (there’s a lot of copper in Copenhague, which gives some buidings their green colour).

 Afterwards we took a barge through the city's canals to discover the city. We embarked from a little harbour called Nyhavn, where there’s a lot of colourful houses. It was pretty amazing !

 After one hour tour we had a free time for lunch, we went to see a store called "Marché du Nord", which is pretty much like our Lafayette galleries, and we ate there on the top floors and then we joined part of the group at Mcdo. Some of us went to a hi-tech shop and tried consoles there ! It was fun!

 Then we went to the design museum about the history of design in Denmark. We discovered that Denmark is famous for designing and exporting chairs.

 Finally we went up the shopping street up to the main station to take the bus and go back. We had dinner in a Turkish restaurant called « Barakat ». Food was delicious !

 

Overall, we all had a great day and look forward going to TEC to meet our partners.
