Classes started last Thursday, so I am already a week into classes. My first class was Danish Language and Culture. Let me tell you, Danish is not an easy language - from the weird sounds, not pronouncing half the words, to having three extra letters: å,æ,ø! So far I can introduce myself and say 'my name is' - Jeg hedder Marianna (pronounced kind of like 'yai hether Marianna'). We already had a field study for that class this past Monday where my whole Danish class went to Café Dalle Valle for a buffet style Danish dinner. It was fun to get to know some other people better and to try other Danish food that I haven't had yet.

Also famous for being extremely hard to pronounce.
I got this meal over the weekend with my friends.

I have also been able to do a little bit of sight seeing. Yesterday after the Design Museum I went with a group of people to see the Little Mermaid, which people say is a must see in Copenhagen. It is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's (a Dane) novel, you guessed it, The Little Mermaid!

I have also been exploring little coffee shops around my school trying to find the best coffee for the lowest price. I'll keep you all updated on my finds.

I have also been exploring around my neighborhood and I found a great little lake to run around. On my first run last week I stumbled upon the sunset. It was the first time I really got to see the sun, so I really enjoyed basking in it the rest of my run.
