I don’t know about this story. I am from Jutland and I know that the people from the northern part of Sealand regards them better educated than we from Jutland who for the most part are farmers. The central parliament over in Copenhagen consists mostly of people from this part of Denmark with none or little knowledge about how ordinary people live.
An elderly couple from Sealand went on a holiday to Rold Storkro not far from where I live. They had dinner where wine was served. Here in Jutland we often put ice cubes in strong wine from France or Spain. When we are talking about wine from outside Europe it is custom to have it in your living room for at least 24 hours before you serve it. Perhaps we are uneducated but that is how we like it.
The couple complained and the question is: Should they acknowledge the local customs or should they expect a certain level of international service? The manager of the hotel claimed that he had set the prices of his rooms so low that the customers can accept his terms regarding food and living standard or leave.
The local police kicked them out because jobs are few and there is no reason not to protect the local industry.
I don’t know whether it is good service to show the local customs when it comes to cuisine or just serve food and alcohol on international terms regardless of country or culture.
What is your opinion of this matter?
