http://instagr.am/p/VtXy4dIMgN/ First departure was from my town, by train. Had a nice conversation about airports with a lady, with whom I agreed Copenhagen Airport is of a perfect size and nicely calm.

http://instagr.am/p/Vts78IIMkh/ MadGlad – I got a tip of this wonderful community kitchen-type cafeteria/diner in central Copenhagen. On a side street to Istedgade, which is also the street known for its sex/junkie area glory days. Although this area (Vesterbro) is undergoing gentrification supported by the government in the next 4 years, it’s still got its rougher edge. Kids families and the well-to-do singles are settling in this area the past years, hence the popularity of it are topping and it’s a good bet on it being the Hipster area of Copenhagen.

http://instagr.am/p/Vt2LQqoMgL/ The diner is called MadGlad (FoodHappy) and serves luscious and tasty foods, home made of course and always with vegetarian dishes as well as meaty ones. Big recommendation from here! It’s great for students and low budget visitors as it’s also cheap.

http://instagr.am/p/Vt43u5IMjj/ Din Nye Ven – Your New Friend, this is a bar/cafe which I find really cozy and awesome. I haven’t been here during bar times, but there’s a foosball table and the brick stone surroundings set the atmosphere towards a store room feel, but in a really positive way. Try the house’s lemonade! It’s heavenly refreshing! ❤

http://instagr.am/p/Vt-ovHIMrH/ Copenhagen Airport seem to be undergoing renovations all the time, but it’s never really a bother. There’s plenty of shops, both material and foods. Of course at the expensive airport prices, but coming here a little early won’t hurt. Tip: Check-in machines on the metro level are often free and carry many companies, if you get there at a crowded time, go here for shorter/no queue.

http://instagr.am/p/VuC40gIMgP/ We had airport drinks! A strawberry mojito and a classic lime mojito at The Bar(Mama Vodka). Expensive shit but they were good! I almost went with the Long Island Iced Tea 😛 Maybe next time….

I’ll leave you hanging for now to see where I’m going hehe follow up tomorrow – plenty of pics, and maybe even a video coming up! 😀

One couldn’t work in high-heels – until women acquired them

Men wore heels, then women, then no one, then porn stars, then you.

The interesting, quick and unexpected read of today: The history of high heels.

Reason 1: It’s always interesting how definitions of masculinity and femininity shifts through the acquiring of certain qualities of behavioral or material nature. The fight for pertaining integrity and the power to define one’s domination of either gender or class.

Reason 2: The identifying of the elite and the qualities one “must” internalize to be part of it, is interesting. How the distinction is made, for which reasons etc. are telling of the societal context. The need for distinction from other groups, the fight for the right to be a certain identity is interesting as well. The most contemporary one is defining and identifying the Hipster, which I think is endlessly interesting.
