Velkommen til København!

I arrived! In one piece? yes. With all my luggage? no. (Thankfully my large suitcase was just half a day behind me and was swiftly returned back to me.)
Its only been two whole days yet I feel as though I have been here at least a week.
I am slowly getting over jet lag and we already have a full schedule. Today was full of orientation, scavenger hunts around historic Copenhagen and plenty of information about the Danes, Danish culture and the Danish language!
Memories thus far:
-minutes before boarding my flight to Frankfurt I ran into five Cal Poly friends headed off to for a year long mission in East Asia. Surprise!
-people watching. Europeans are so interesting- the way the dress, talk and their mannerisms. I sat for over an hour at the Frankfurt airport and simply ‘people watched’
-bought a nothing-special hotdog and small coke at the train station for 50dkk, equivalent to about $10…for a hotdog!!! these prices are going to take some time to get used to.
-trying to pronounce Danish words somewhat correctly. Its frustrating when I try to ask for directions and I can’t even say the place I am trying to go to!
-biking in circles for 45 minutes in downtown Copenhagen before finally asking for directions. Thankfully everyone speaks English!
…plenty more adventures to come. Bring it on Copenhagen!
