Copenhagen, Denmark – 4 April 2013
It’s early April and in Copenhagen spring is creeping in – though it’s still a bit too cold for my liking. We got under the skin of the 170-year-old traditional – and tradition rich – amusement park a mere week before the new season kicks off.
Taking a stroll through Tivoli before it opens to the public is an interesting eye opener. For some reason one expects a place like this to always look the same, but the barred gates, myriad of workmen and their machines, and rolls of grass waiting to be laid down like a carpet in your living room quickly put things into perspective. Preparing a precious old lady like Tivoli to face the crowd in all her grandeur requires a lot of hard work back stage – she needs her attention and make-up like any great diva.
