Summers in Denmark, as in most other Nordic states, dusk only to herald the dawn. But the Danes, scoffing at the night's truancy, throng the scores of open-air eateries lining the streets of Copenhagen, lighted candles adorning the tables in broad daylight! The extended evenings provide a good opportunity for the souvenir hunter to scour rows of shops near the Tivoli. The hunt invariably starts on a disappointing note, with shelfloads of ubiquitous Taiwanese figurines or crystalware from all over Europe.
