A Photographic Panorama by Dori Stern (Age 12), Hope Herndon
(Age 11), and Aaron Stern (Age 7)
[with a little help from Steven Stern (surprisingly young)]
Amsterdam Canals 1
Dad's Comments: The boat ride was very nice. Dori was worried,
though, when the guide told us that, on average, one car per week falls
into the canals.

Amsterdam Maritime Museum 1
Dad's Comments: Hope and Aaron were exposed as the true pirates they
are. I guess they took Dori hostage. Later, in Copenhagen, they trashed

Luckily, they have bad aim.

Copenhagen Building 2
Dad's Comments: Copenhagen is a beautiful, charming city. I just
loved walking around and seeing street after street of colorful buildings.
Also, the statues and plazas were nice. There is just a friendly,
welcoming atmosphere to the city, despite the cold, dreary weather.

the British (click here
More Guards at the Queen's Palace

to quit their day job).

Dad's comments: They look tough now, but wait until they have to
start fighting with the swords.
Outside the Aquarium
Dad's comments: I don't see why Aaron would be afraid of sharks.
Inside the Aquarium
Dad's comments: This picture is beautiful with a high resolution
internet connection. The kids took it while I was listening to Victor
Rios-Ruil make statements like (paraphrasing) "I refuse to answer the
question because I don't care about it."
Dori's Comments: It was really crowded.
Aaron's Comments: I liked the naked people.
Dad's Comments: Copenhagen has a really nice pedestrian mall with
shops, street musicians, etc. Dori, Hope, and Aaron were really excited
with some musicians playing drums. But they had some problems with all
of the "nude" statues. (I liked them)
Dori's comments: They had many bicyclists who were dangerous.
Dad's comments: Every few street corners, we would come up to an
open plaza with a fountain or statue. I don't remember the names (they
were all in Danish), but they gave the city a friendly feel.
Skating Outside in Copenhagen 1
Dad's comments: Dori is helping Aaron. But it is really Dori who
needs help while Aaron is a star skater. It was nice of Aaron to
Skating Outside in Copenhagen 2
Dad's comments: Hope showed off for Dori...
Skating Outside in Copenhagen 3
Dad's comments: until.. well I guess she needs some more practice.
Dad's comments: I was too fast for anyone to get me on film. If
not for the Denmark trip, I would have been in the Olympics.
Skating Outside in Copenhagen 4
Dad's comments: Dori races around the track hugging the rail.
Skating Outside in Copenhagen 5
Dad's comments: Aaron tries to throw a snowball at me but misses
(because of my overwhelming speed).
Skating Outside in Copenhagen 6
Dad's comments: Another skater tries to avoid Hope.
Skating Outside in Copenhagen 7
Dad's comments: Lots of skaters skating from Hope as fast as possible.
The Little Mermaid in Copenhagen 4
Dad's comments: The children are wet because they had to jump in the
water to catch the little mermaid and prevent her from escaping.
Dad spent three days at the
Economics Department at the University of Copenhagen discussing his
brilliant paper, entitled Cohabitation, Marriage, and Divorce in Equilibrium.
