I’m at the doctor’s. They’re going to inject me. And I’m afraid. Nevertheless, I’ve had a full day today, that included going for a meeting with the production project managers in Gentofte. We’re gonna focus a bit on smaller projects as well. It was nice to get in contact to the place where it all happens. In Bagsværd, we’re in a bit of an ivory tower and not that in touch with the production reality. Once you get outside you realise that production is what we are and their projects, although small in spendings are quite big in risks. An interesting perspective.

Took a long walk and went to Mojoe to do some work. Ended up going home and being lazy, but at least it was a relaxed Sunday.

Ok, so I’m moving. Peter found me a place with one of his neighbours – BTW, how amazing is that he did that for me?
Ulla is my landlady and she invited me to join and meet the neighbours for the ‘day they put the Christmas lights on’ and then for dinner.
Wait what? Yes, I had my first dinner with a Danish family. Not only is Ulla amazingly nice for inviting me, but I have also felt good. Really good. It was relaxed and enjoyable and cozy and warm.
There is this myth going around that Danes are cold. And formal. And weird. There are two possibilities, either they are and I am too, or they are not. I tend to think that they are and I am too. But then again it also depends on who you meet.
Maybe I’ve been lucky to meet the right people. Maybe it’s because I always expect the worse from people. Maybe it’s because I generally choose carefully and am very selective with whom I let in my life. Maybe a combination of all this.
Either way, my first real Danish experience was amazing. One of my neighbours is a diplomat, another a layer, and another a professor. Not bad.
And Ulla is a Taurus.
