So I'm finally in Copenhagen and have recovered a bit from the flight.  Both flights were delayed so I got to sit in the plane on a runway for a really long time.

Once I got in we were taken to one of the University of Copenhagen's campuses...where we waited...and then waited some more.  Finally we got a bus to our new housing (pictures to come when I'm less lazy).  DIS rented out an entire floor of an apartment building in a nice quiet little neighborhood only a street or two away from a very large park.  I'm in a double and we have a bathroom (though the toilet doesn't work yet).  The entire bathroom is tiled and when you shower the water goes everywhere.  Apparently it's this way everywhere...and it's not very convenient.

We also have a kitchenette.  A very tiny kitchenette.  But our whole room is decked out in lots of Ikea furniture and looks much classier than it should.  The common room is all fancy looking too...compared to anything at Oberlin.

I haven't really seen any of Copenhagen yet.  Mostly I've been commuting to and from the school for Orientation which hasn't been all that useful.  Basically reiterating pamphlets I've already read through.  Today we did take a bus tour of Copenhagen.  It would've been nice but I was at the back of the bus and couldn't hear the tour guide.  Then we got off and walked awhile but I accidently brought my heavy backpack with me as no one told me we were walking far.  And the tour guide ended up being really boring anyway...basically telling us the entire history of his life.  On the cool side, we did visit the CIA/army headquarters for Denmark.  I'm going to go back and take pictures.  Basically...there's no security.  You just walk right in and the whole thing is pretty low key.

Anyways, I will update more later...right now I'm going to actually unpack as I haven't the last few days.  The one thing I was missing were hangers...and now I finally found some...it wasn't easy.
