Tivoli/Last Post of the Year

Happy New Year's Eve! Here in Copenhagen we are preparing for a nice feast, accompanied by lots of champagne. Yesterday, we headed downtown to see the last of the Christmas decorations.
After walking through downtown, we headed into Tivoli, the amusement park next to the central train station. Every Christmas, Tivoli opens with beautiful decorations and a cute Christmas market. This year's theme was Russian Christmas meets Nordic Christmas.
I think the Russian part really stands out.
It wasn't exactly a warm day yesterday. With temperatures around 2 C/35 F, plus a biting wind, we were all a bit chilly.
Around 3:30, Bobby noticed some very dark clouds rolling in, so we headed to a café to stop for a drink and miss the forthcoming rain. Lucky us, the skies dumped a ton of freezing rain within minutes of entering the café. We waited out the deluge, and warmed our insides, with some drinks.
The rain wasn't through after one drink, so we were 'forced' into buying a second round. Bobby gets a bit goofy with a second beer.
Once the rain cleared, we headed back into the now dark outside. As nice as Tivoli was during the day, it was even more beautiful at night.
Happy New Year's to our family and friends. Thanks for stopping by our blog, and we look forward to seeing you back here in 2013!
