Giving Copenhagen a Second Chance

I remember our first trip to Copenhagen, back in 1989, as something of a bust.
Dark and rainy, cold and wet. We wandered around a near-empty Christiana
and peered through the closed gates of Tivoli. It was so depressing that we
abandoned our plan to continue north and instead, after just one day of Scandinavia,
we wandered, soaking wet, back to the the train station and hopped onto a train
bound for sunny Spain, never to return.
Until this summer. After a three-leg flight, we crashed for a nap in our hotel
then wandered out to explore Copenhagen's old town. We
waited out a brief but intense thundershower under the awning of a polske
stand then made our way towards the University district, where we saw these
guys trying out a little BMX Copenhagen style (click thumbnails).
