Hop-scotch snake in Kongens Have

Tried another hop-scotch game in Kopenhagen: a snake.

Quote: ” .. decided to draw a snake-like ladder. I chose to do this in one of Copenhagen’s pretty parks – these Danes really know how to make a herbaceous border look good far into the fall. Went to Kongens Have in the center of town, it having a great tree-lined avenue with dappled shade and a tarmac surface that would support snake-drawing without the disturbance of a tile pattern.

The avenue I chose bisected a lawn dotted with small-sized modern statuary, so my snake was in good company. Spent a good hour-and-a-half on drawing my design, then sat there for another hour observing people’s reactions. Again: Danes not a playful lot. They’re not even tempted – and very few moments of doubt are created. As for spreading doubt amongst Danish people, I’ll have to think again.”
