Magical magic word

What is the first image that comes into your mind when you think of Denmark? For me, and not that I'm not ashamed of, apart from a couple of films, very very few (and I'm beeing optimistic).

Fortunately, this situation has changed, and now, when I think of Denmark, I will inevitably think of pålægschokolade.

Surprise from Denmark!

Plus I will remember the thrill I felt when I opened the envelope that arrived from the North and discovered two small boxes with magical magic words on them. The contents: pålægschokolade, those very thin layers of chocolate ready to be eaten on bread that, as I've learned, are usually taken for breakfast in Denmark. I couldnt' help but comparing, as they remembered me of the chocolate bar sandwiches we ate in Spain when we were kids during the 70's. I wonder if the kids there are still eating these chocolate sandwiches today.

The person to be blame for this new association of mine is Henriette, a nice århusianer whom I met last summer. She has also talked about pålægschokolade in her blog. Don't miss it!
