I'm in Denmark for a couple of days – the only Scandinavian country I hadn't visited. It often has the "happiest population in the world" in those unfathomable surveys by interested parties. My first encounter with a Dane was my taxi driver and it was not promising – he was a naturalised Egyptian who had been in the country since 1994 and was about to move back to Cairo to be a dentist. "Why would you come here for a holiday?" he asked incredulously. "It's boring, incredibly expensive, the weather is awful and we only eat little potatoes." He was right about the weather and the place is eye-wateringly expensive. The people, however, are ridiculously lovely and almost make me forget that I am holidaying in what appears to be some sort of Aryan super-state - everyone being blond, blue-eyed and very tall.
