Copenhagen is called the European Green Capital 2014. It sounds great, but I still believe Copenhagen can do even better than they do today. It can be an even greener city. While waiting for the politicians to plant more trees and plan even more for bikers instead of car drivers, I sometimes visit the Botanical Garden to get a monthly dose of nature.

The Botanical Garden is a big park in the middle of town. It’s here that I see the first lilacs bloom every spring, and it’s here that I discover new flowers and bushes that I’ve never seen before. In the summer, people tend to sit all over the park. There are friends drinking coffee, old couples going for a walk and photographers capturing different plants.

When you love the summer and heat (I do!), it’s something special to enter the green houses in the garden. It actually reminds me of the period of time when I lived in Washington DC in the US. It was in the middle of the summer, and when I went outside, it was like walking into a wall of heat. If I long back to DC, the green house offers me the same amount of humidity that DC did, and I’m actually quite fond of it.
