“Travels to a Different Time: ” 19July1975: Copenhagen, Denmark: Exhaustion

I have been so tired over the past few days with endless walking and I haven’t written anything in the journal as I lost my pen. I arrived in Copenhagen after a memorable boat trip on a ferry. A big party you might want to say. I found a room here at a youth hostel which is quite nice but a bit like a luxury detention centre. It is $4.50 a night. I woke up drained of much energy or enthusiasm and shoved the usual boring bread and jam down my throat. I washed up and went out for a walk. I met a couple of German guys I knew from the Stockholm youth hostel. We went to a youth centre which has a restaurant and jazz club. I returned to the detention centre for a shower and met a German who had just arrived from Munich. Supper was half cooked freeze-dried soup and some leftover rice I threw into the soup. Went downstairs and played some ping pong with an Aussie guy. The beer is excellent. This is the real Carlsberg not the swill we get in Montreal brewed under license from Carlsberg.
