Scumbled Duck

From a bit ago:  my photo of a worked-over wall in Christiania, the 'free town' and pot-haven in Copenhagen.  Christiana apparently 'seceded' from the rest of the Danish capital forty years ago, and the ultra-tolerant Danes have allowed it to continue as a somewhat irregular urban redoubt ever since.  At its center Christiania is one giant pot market, full of picnic tables and merchants selling spliffs, marijuana t-shirts, and hash brownies.  Pot illegal in Denmark but Danish cops mostly turn a blind eye.  The whole area is also a shrine to street art and art installations, plus home to any number of slackers, rebels, stoners.  And this bird.
