An emergency tanning session in Copenhagen

SBM_7809During the four days we wandered about Copenhagen and the surrounding area I noticed a few intriguing trends.  One of them was that many of the women were wearing bikinis under their dresses.  That didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me unless they were all either on their way to or from the beach, or they were just trying to be prepared for an emergency sun tanning session.  Admittedly, it never really got dark while we were in Scandinavia and the sun really only set for a couple hours each night, so there was a chance of an emergency tanning session breaking out, but I never actually expected that it would happen.  And then, as I was walking back from the ill-fated endeavor to grab a hot dog, I spotted it.  There was actually an emergency sun tanning session in progress.  I couldn’t help but laugh to myself as I grabbed the photographic proof.  It turns out that the stark changes in the length of day really can change peoples’ behavior.  Including drawing out impromptu tanning sessions when the desire strikes.

Good times.
