I have spent the last five days in beautiful Copenhagen. On Wednesday night, I presented my Carlsberg Foundation Distinguished Lecture “Quantum black holes” in the DR Concert Hall in front of 1800 spectators and 7000 people in cinemas around Denmark. After my lecture I met Crown Princess Mary and was presented with a 133 year old Carlsberg beer.

Monday and Tuesday I participated in a workshop arranged by the Niels Bohr International Academy in the lecture hall of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters.

I have been pleased to be back in Copenhagen, which I visited last time in 1970 to participate in a conference on general relativity.
