Danish is an impossibly hard-to-understand language. Everyone is walking around speaking gibberish. It reminds of old video games where the characters talk with a bunch of syllables instead of actual words. All these years later, I’m thinking maybe they were just speaking Danish in those games.
Here are a few other observations from visiting Copenhagen, Denmark.
- It’s clean. The Central Train station doesn’t even smell bad.
- The people are nice.They are a little shy, but all happy to help.
- They speak better English than a lot of Americans.
- They take their food seriously, and we’re glad they do.
- Speaking of food, the Danish palette loves lemon.
- The people are extremely good looking.
- The minorities are very minor. There’s not much diversity.
- Streets are well illuminated. Since the sun sets at 3:30, it’s nice to have omniscient lightning from the street
- lights suspended by wires down the middle of the streets.
- Nothing is cheap (ouch).
- It’s really well organized. Everything they do is an exercise in minimalism and efficiency.
- It’s a huge cycling city. Even in the rain, the bike lanes are as busy — if not busier than — as the roads.
- Everything is candle lit, and they have a wide variety of candles to set the perfect lighting.
Hygge (Hoo-gah): v. – 1. coziness 2. good casual atmosphere 3. chillen
I love it here.
