Our first big activity with the Danes at the Folkehøjskole: dodge ball. Although the rules were a little different, it was basically the same as we play it here in the states. They only use one dodge ball here…and you can still hit people when your out. Us on “team America” had fun pretending that we had no idea what “dodge ball” was. A foreign film? Anyways…we Americans made it to the finale! Unfortunately we took second place at the end. Either way we had a lot of fun joking around with the Danes and it brought us all closer together. Our red face paint was also obviously extremely intimidating.
Now on to my new mode of transportation. Biking in Denmark isn’t always as quaint and cute as it seems. When Aleah and I first picked up our bikes, we felt so European. We couldn’t wait to explore the city and coast of Denmark more with our new mode of transportation. This morning, however, almost ruined the whole “biking in Europe” experience for us. On our way to the train station, it started to pour down rain. My raincoat wouldn’t stay on my head…so I couldn’t see with all of the rain in my eyes. Mascara was running down my face. All these cars were honking at me and I wasn’t quite sure why until Aleah informed me that my red thong was hanging out for the whole town to see. Once we made it to the train we looked like we had literally just gotten out of the shower…and it took about all day for us to dry off. To top it all off…our butts were SO SORE. Still sore…ouch. This afternoon we got lost on our bikes…but thanks to getting lost we discovered this beautiful hidden part of town. We decided to then forgive our bikes…and give them another chance. However, we are still really, really, sore. Anyways, about to head to the bars with our bikes. This should be interesting!
