FINALLY! Seb and I went into the permit office because I was tired of calling them every week... and wouldn't you know, a decision was made and I received the permit. It's valid until the end of the year and only allows me to work 6months full time, but it's a start and I will take it :)
Jumping back in time to Leah's last day in Copenhagen! Annie and Jørgen picked up Leah, Brianna and I and we headed over to see the house Farfar had grown up in. We stopped by the graveyard to see his parents' graves and took a peak at the church. We then headed out of the city to Roskilde to visit the cathedral. This church houses the coffins of all the deceased royalty of Denmark. It is a world heritage site, and with good reason. Each room had a different Royal Family in it, and each designed in a unique way.
There are in total 39 kings and queens buried in the cathedral. One I found very interesting was Christian the 7th. There was recently a movie made, A Royal Affair, that tells the story of the slightly crazy Christian the 7th. The film is done partly in English but mostly in Danish, with English subtitles. It tells of the marriage between Christian the 7th and an English girl, and involves a German advisor - and an affair! It was an interesting movie and very cool to see his coffin right there in front of me. We also saw the renovations being done for the current queen and a scale model of what her coffin is to look like... I found that part a little eerie...
I remember this door from 2 years ago when my dad visited! Naturally, Leah and I had to take a picture in front of it!
After Roskilde we headed to Annie and Jørgen's for a lovely dinner. And after dinner a few more relatives joined us for cake and coffee. Since it had been such a warm day we were able to sit out on the patio and enjoy the evening. I think it was a great send off for Leah :)
