 If you are looking  at this picture, you probably think it is a street in Copenhagen. Yes, it is Nyhavn, one the of the most charming  parts of Copenhagen. If you look very close, you may even see people walking on the street and people sitting at small tables enjoying a cup of coffee or eating their lunch. But if you look even closer, you will see larger people in the background and tall trees. This is a picture from  Legoland and all the houses, boats, people are made of lego blocks. There are buildings from all parts of the world, There are used millions of lego blocks to make these remarkable buildings and they are all made by people and not by a machine. Most people don’t know that Lego blocks are made in Denmark and it was here the first Legoland was build.  Tourists and Danes alike love to visit this wonderful place. Legoland is one of best tourist attractions in Denmark and people can spend severval days here and not see it all. Eating is a big part of visiting other countries and of course, Danish open-face sanwiches are always on the menu.  My husband and I were there a few days ago together with our grandchildren. We stopped and ate a shooting star.for lunch.  Why it is called a shooting star nobody really knows, but it tastes just great.
