Exploration Copenhagen, Part 1

26 Aug

I am disappointed that every morning on the train rides are not the same as Monday morning.. We were not greeted with a box of Cheerios at the station by a Cheerios promotion lady again 😦

I will always say yes to free food in Copenhagen!

On Tuesday, as a part of orientation, we had to do an urban exploration of the city.  It was somewhat of a scavenger hunt where we had to find certain landmarks.  It was a whole lot of walking (about 4 hours), but I had a great time.  I also met Kali who goes to the University of Denver and had class with Aaron and knew him!  It was a welcomed connection and she is pretty awesome to explore with.  We are doing a visit to Esrum Abbey on Sunday along with Avery, a girl who lives in Trekoner kollegium down the street with me.  So that should be an interesting blog post with lots of fun photos.

I only got to see a sliver of Copenhagen and it took over 4 hours!  This wonderful city has so much more that I cannot wait to see…I do not know how I will fit it in between classes, field studies, homework, and study tours!
