My first morning in Denmark, Thora, the gallery owner, took me to where they make cheese
and butter. When my children were young, we used to make butter by putting heavy cream in a jar. They would shake it until the cream became butter. Here they use big machines that shake the cream.
The first day was spent mostly catching up on sleep. After that there were trips to the beach
and to the woods
Denmark has some of the most beautiful scenery. It is mainly a very flat country, gently rolling landscapes sculpted with rows of trees and fields of wheat and barley. I find the windmills against the big sky very elegant, stately.
