One of the things I love most about Copenhagen is how much green space this city has. Not being able to properly escape to the countryside doesn't seem so bad here. The Botanical Gardens is prime spot for drinks on Fridays after classes as it is located right across the street from campus. I am optimistic about an early spring that will allow this, the weather has been freakin' wonderful!
One of the reasons I was drawn to Denmark is because all of my Economics professors continually rave about the social and political merits of Scandinavia. Everyone says that Danes are amongst the happiest people in the world. Honestly, the little things in this city make me smile so much that I think it would be surprising if it wasn't the happiest nation in the world.
