What we did today

A quick update - This morning we left Legoland, then traveled by bus and train to Odense, Denmark. We had intended to stay at a farm, but as I alluded to below, we were unable to get there, due to no available rental cars and buses that don't run on Sundays. To say Benjamin was disappointed was an understatement. Instead, we booked a room at a hotel in downtown Odense. The room is small, and we had to say we only had 2 kids. Jonathan will be sleeping on the floor tonight. But it's clean and was only a 5 minute walk from the train station.

After dropping off our luggage, we found some overpriced food - have I mentioned how expensive Denmark is??? I had better find a job when I get back - and then we walked to a children's playland. For 55 DKK each (about $14), the boys played in a huge indoor climbing set complete with a gigantic ball pit. We stayed for two hours, until they were too sweaty and tired to continue. (Benjamin, sitting here next to me, notes that HE was not tired.) On the way back to the hotel, we picked up bread, bananas, yogurt, cookies, and chips for dinner. We've been relaxing here ever since, aiming for an early bedtime. Tomorrow we will explore the town of Odense, Hans Christian Anderson's birthplace. It's supposed to rain, but we're not complaining because it's really the first day of rain we have had on this trip. And, Benjamin adds, they do have a ping pong table and a pool table we're going to use tomorrow when we need to dry off.
