Cappuccino & Chocolate Chip Cookie treat
After my journey to the International House in order to fix my CPR, which at the end I couldn’t get yet, I had a long walk back from the office into Nørrebro again. I’m absolutely in love with my neighborhood, I couldn’t have asked for a better location. That’s why my mission is to explore all its streets and corners before hitting the rest of the city. So I took blågårdsgade and had a stop in a coffee place called “Arabica”. It has tall windows and has lots of space, though it still manages to have that cozy Copenhagen feeling. They serve mainly coffee and baked goodies, but they also have some food (like the daily soup for 30 DKK which didn’t look bad at all!). It was around 15:00, so I decided to warm up with a cappuccino (I must say they are good at making these around here, never got disappointed until now) and a big chocolate cookie with white chocolate chips. What a treat! The place was full of non-danes which was quite funny for a change, being able to follow the conversations around me (and which I of course did). What I noticed was that they made not one, but several spelling mistakes on their menu written on the blackboard: a cappuccino was a “cappuchino” (maybe a Chinese variation?) and the macchiato lost a “c”. Silly things, but it always disturbs me a little (just Google it!). After been warmed up I continued my journey outside. Finally I went to Assistens Cemetery, which is really in front of my apartment, and I saw H.C. Andersen’s gravestone. The stone itself was just a stone, it didn’t say so much to me, but the whole atmosphere in the park was so intense, probably also because of the grey weather, it was a perfect fairy tale scenario.
