As far as national day gatherings in Copenhagen go, they don’t get much bigger than the US Embassy’s at Rydhave, and on June 20 the Americans were once again laying on the style in a fashion few nations can compete with.

The guest of honour was this beautiful car. Cue music: “I don’t need no driver’s licence, I’m too reckless to survive. It’s like a carburetor instigator (feels all right, feels all right) drivin’ in a slick black Cadillac.”

The hundreds who took to Rydhave’s lawns were in no hurry to leave given the wealth of food, culture and activities

US ambassador Carla Sands took to the stand to address those present
