Yesterday I met with family for lunch! I was picked up and taken over to their place for a feast, I may be a bit spoiled. We had everything from fish to pork and even some of my favourite frikadeller (meatball). Open face sandwich making is similar to an art form here, there is a very specific way a sandwich is built and all danes know how to make it great. I observed as they carefully layered each part of the sandwich and I copied as best I could. And of course no lunch would be complete without a beer, or two! Just when I thought I couldn't eat anymore, dessert was served - coffee and cake. I feel incredibly lucky to have such a great family living in Copenhagen! It's always nice to catch up and spend time with them, it was a wonderful afternoon!
Today I spent my afternoon in a lovely little 'hygge' cafe. I met up with my friend Connie who I haven't seen in a year and a half. I lived with her in residence when we were on our exchange and now she is doing her masters at Copenhagen Business School. We sat for hours catching up and reminiscing on old times. We get along very well and have already started talking about when we want to meet up next.
I have started reading Burial Rites by Hannah Kent, not very far into it but so far it's a great read. It's based in the 1800's in Iceland and follows a girl who was accused of murder. I think I will be spending a few afternoons with this book and a fancy coffee!
