The Little Merman

img_3669Everyone outside of Denmark has their image of the Disney mermaid but, in reality, the little mermaid is quite different. Mostly, tourists find her to be much smaller than they expected. And now, just to confuse things even more, there’s a new merman in town.

Specifically, he’s up in Helsingor (Elsinore, where Hamlet’s castle is located according to Shakespeare), and he’s a lot shinier than the little mermaid. Otherwise, he’s a good reflection (yup, he’s shiny) of the old gal down in Copenhagen. Plus, his location is much better for photo-ops.
