I am doing my level best to learn how to do all the funky things one can do on a blog, like load a picture, get the blog ring thingamajig to show on the front page. It´s taking time… I´ll get there.
Today is day 8 in Denmark and so far so good. Hey, I am at a computer blogging, what else could be wrong. I promised to write more about Denmark when I got my thoughts together. My "creative muse" seems to have taken a short holiday and I find myself unable to compose anything worth putting down.
Denmark has a population of 5.6million people and by gad do you feel it. I have always lived in a city so this whole outback boondoos living takes some getting used to. The landscape is flat rolling with vasts pieces of farming land. At the moment it is all black with manure in preparation for planting, brown with dead harvest or green with grass (crop rotation stuff blah blah!).
I have not yet truly interacted with Danes. The official business I had to do, all the registering to get all the vital numbers was painless. The people were ok and at least made the effort to respond in English when I spoke directly to them. I start my danish lessons when I get my numbers (which I was promised would take about 3 weeks). It is there that I hope to start the socialisation process albeit with non-danes.
The job thing… eh, I have a small gig at the family bakery! yeah! working 4 hours a day. Today I am at an office doing some consulting gig thingy… so like I said, one day at time.
that´s all for now.
