Every airport are closed, at least until tomorrow (16.4) noon. Not only in Denmark, but in all the countries that are influenced by the ashes from the volcano in Iceland. This is the first time it happens ever, that all airports are being closed. The problem with the ashes have been here before, but at that time airports wasn´t invented. 1783.

Little mermaid in Tivoli.
Tivoli has opened today. This is a sign of spring. This year Tivoli will be hosting a copy of the little mermaid.  As some of you might know, the original little mermaid has been send to China, to join the world exhibition there. Not everyone thought that this was a good idea. For the tourists, there will be other things to see at her absence , the next 6 months. But other things is not “The little mermaid” and the descendants of the sculptor Edvard Eriksen, has lent their copy to Tivoli this season, because they would be sorry for disappointed tourists.
