Opening night in Copenhagen I nearly miss the performance

I had a free day in Copenhagen with a performance of Albert Herring in the evening, which was to be attended by the King of Denmark, himself an amateur conductor.

I thought I would leave Copenhagen early in the morning and take the ferry to Gothenburg, Sweden, and then return by an early afternoon ferry to be in time for the opera performance.

I had a good look round Gothenburg and went to catch the ferry back to Copenhagen. Going through customs I showed my British passport to a customs officer  who became very rude and obstreperous.  He sneered at the souvenirs I had bought and questioned me endlessly.  Just as the ferry’s whistle blew  he decided to let me go,so I ran up the gangplank just as they were about to raise it.  I would be in time to play the opera after all!
