Danish Heritage

Lyra has a bit of Danish heritage. Her late grandmother was a Nye, and she is an Ericson as well, and fit in rather well in Scandinavia, to the point that tourists took her pictures about six times while we were in Copenhagen, sometimes holding their cameras at arm's length to take themselves in the picture with her. I think all of these times were while I had her on the bike. (I did own up to not being native when the tourists spoke English, but they still seemed equally charmed by her. As well they should.)

Hey guess what? I just found out recently that I'm Danish, too, maybe we're related! (Turns out the guy we thought was from England wasn't, just the boat he came over on.)

Lyra: the latest craze in U.S. diplomacy! May she be president one day, too.

I don't think so, Den. I heard she's named after a character from a book by AN ATHEIST! Not in THIS country, dude!
