Life here is awesome! I absolutely love it. The people I live with, Tage and Su, are the sweetest people. They treat me like their daughter, cook me food everyday and make sure I know my way around...
Volleyball is good too. Way not as intense as what I'm used to, but I'm getting used to it no problem :-) . Our practices are only like 1½ to 2 hours long so I have the whole day to pretty much do whatever I want, which so far is sit around in really comfy furniture (the Danes are known for their furniture design), drink lots of tea and coffee (they love their coffee), read, and take naps. A nice break from last semester, let me tell you.
It is so beautiful here, it looks like something out of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. I live in a suburb just north of Copenhagen center in the 'country'. Full of cute little houses with woods and pastures in between, but just a train ride away from downtown Copenhagen. It started snowing a couple of days ago (the first of the year, very strange) but when it stops I'll bike into town and take lots of pics. Tage knows the head distributer for Carlsberg brewery (apparently "the best beer in the world") so he's taking me on a tour this weekend.
Pretty much, life here rocks. Danish people are super nice, they all speak fluent English, and they actually like Americans. I fit in quite well here because we agree on lots of things
Until next time,
