Walking on Strøget in Copenhagen can be akin to running a gauntlet. Not only do you have to dodge pickpockets, living statues and musicians, you often also have to try to tell one of these guys that you're positively not interested in his or hers cause, only to have to repeat the same thing 10 times more until your response seems more like a threat than a polite "No thanks". This girl with the bike was followed for 50m by the guy from UNICEF, even though she seemed utterly disinterested in his waterfall talking. In the coming days I'll show and tell you some more of these very persistent bleeding hearts.
