Default Christiania Freetown

Christiania is the darker side of Copenhagen.

It is an autonomous state inside Copenhagen with his own rules and the Christiania Law, the citizens of Christiania resigned to the benefits as a Denmark citizens for living in a "free" state where cannabis can be traded.

Photos are prohibited and I was almost lynched when I shoot this picture:



I was able to shoot only one picture of this place but nothing interesting to see, just some rustic cabanas were drug dealers trade cannabis to local and tourist.

But not all is bad there, I found an art gallery in one of the buildings and I met a nice lady who was exposing her work.



Leah is an advocate for the immigrants in Europe and she express in her sculptures her fight for the cause, she let me capture her portrait with my camera:



















It was a nice experience to see the exhibition and talk with Leah, now it is time to leave...













Peace..!!!! :-)

Great indoor shots! I visited Christianhaven about 10 years ago. I didn't really enjoy it, to be honest. It had nothing to do with the pot, but the mix of local dealers and tourists smokers were a bit annoying.

It was interesting for me to see something different, Christiania was created as a social experiment but to me is just a refugee for people that want some "freedom" at a very high price.

LOL... sometimes it's good to get out of your comfort zone to appreciate what you have.
