Hey! I’m so sorry – I promised you a final update on my semester in Copenhagen , and I’m a little late. (But better late than never, don’t you think?) A few things.

“There is no such thing as bad weather, only badly dressed people.” Sounds like a Dad quote, doesn’t it? (But it’s Danish. And accurate. They bike in rain, snow, sleet, hail, you name it.)

Except for a couple housing dilemmas, it’s been a quiet (but busy) week here in Copenhagen. We fell back an hour on Sunday. Even with the time change, it is still (still) dark in Denmark by 5PM. We go to class, do our work – and at night my floor tries to be as hygge as possible. The … Continue reading
