My week in Denmark is almost over and although I’m excited to go home, I’ve enjoyed my week here.
I’m staying at a lovely hotel, newly renovated and very modern. Of course I still haven’t figured out how to use the fancy shower without first spraying myself with freezing cold water, and the minibar has Pepsi instead of my beloved Coke with sugar instead of corn syrup, but somehow I’ll survive :)
The girl behind the counter at the kebab place knew tonight without hesitation that I wanted “114 & pommes frites, to take.” I can’t decide if that’s cool or pathetic. I think I’ve almost gotten my fill of falafel… I know, I can hardly believe it myself!
I’ve learned some important things this week:
Do not let your travel agent book you on a connecting flight that takes off from Terminal A 35 minutes after your overnight flight lands in Terminal C.
Do not drink 7 espresso shots, then try to shoot photos without a tripod.
No matter how jet lagged you are, do not drink 7 espresso shots and expect to fall asleep at a decent hour.
No matter what the guy at the car rental place tells you, a Peugeot 308 is more than “10 centimeters” longer than a Toyota Yaris.
No good is coming from cobblestone streets and high heels.
- Unless you like showering with a trash bag on your head, remember your shower cap.
I really am enjoying the slower pace, clean air, and the company of my expat and Danish collegues. I’m still waiting for Photoshop to be installed on this laptop, so I’ll have to post photos after I get back.
Hope everyone is having a pleasant week :)
