Fortunately everything went well with the visa, so I also had time to enjoy a few nice spring days in Copenhagen, which allowed me to see a few friends and even play tourist for a bit. After that I even made it for my brother's birthday party in Sønder Brarup.
One of the things that is always amazing about coming home from India is that you suddenly notice things that seemed completely normal before. I now realise I really like the similar-looking brick houses in the picture below, something you wouldn't see in India:

I met up with my father, who was in Copenhagen for a meeting and together we drove up to Helsingør (Elsinore) to see the famous castle of Kronborg, famous for being the setting for Shakespeare's play Hamlet.
Kronborg's small but beautiful chapel, which - as far as I know - is the oldest surviving part of the castle.
