Peter and Christoffer decided to go in April for a short trip to India in April. We experienced a lot: a nice contact with the Indian friends, one of the leading economies
that makes incredible impression of a total chaos, undescribable contrasts in the real time and space. To complete the description, the eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull

Ari is getting self-sufficient
Ari Kofler is one year now. Since his birth he learned how to crawl, how to
laugh and how to be a good kid. He has very regular life and is so called easy
child. It is a pleasure to be with him and talk to him. He then opens his big,
blue, intelligent eyes with the looong lashes and listens carefully.

Tour to the 'Tivoli' garden
Peter, Isabel, Hannah and I had a nice tour to the ''Tivoli Garden'' in the
center of Copenhagen. ''Tivoli'' is a amusement park full of flowers and other
attractions in Copenhagen Downtown. Danish children associate ''Tivoli'' with
fun, crazy behaviour and everything which is not accepted usually by the parents

Peter in Czernobyl
Believe it or not,
Peter visited Czernobyl in Ukraine. However strange it would sound he had an
unforgetable experience that turned upside down his imaginations about the
event that took place the 26th of April 1986.See

we revisited Bornholm. As usually the weather was sunny, the air clear as

became a serious conversation partner. She sometimes discuss serious topics ("Dad
use to be different", "I like Daniel"). She uses the literary

Tour to the ZOO
On one of the gorgeous days in October Jacob and I went to the Copenhagen
zoological garden. Jecob has always been a great lover of animals. I

animals that attracted Jacob's attention then were the sparrows on the lawn
