spent the weekend in beautiful solvang, a small town up north which is also called the danish capital of america. it's really a beautiful and charming little town, with quaint stores, galleries, cafes, restaurants and shops. the city even has a 'hans christian andersen museum' in honor of the man widely considered as the father of modern fairy tale.
it's my second trip to solvang (a danish word meaning 'sunny fields') and i must say that i'll keep on coming back.
had lunch at a restaurant called 'the touch,' home of the world-famous belgian waffles and crepes topped with fresh fruit. ironically, not one of us ordered waffles and crepes. hehehe.
i had pork chops. yumyum.
after a hearty lunch, we walked around the village. the photo above caught my eye. back in LA, we don't usually see stuff like this every day.
this one reminded me of an old carlsberg commercial. i don't know why. hehehe.
this one i found cute. i think they call it a surrey bike. tourists can go sight-seeing in downtown solvang using this bike. cute 'no?
