Hej! This would be rude in Czech or in English, but it’s how you say hi in Danish…
…so be it 🙂 You can tell me anything, pretty Nyhavn buildings.
1. I am definitely one of the shortest people in this city (maybe country)
2. I can barely even afford coffee or potatoes, cafés are so expensive
Cost for cheesecake, filter coffee and a refill? $11.50
Most substantial meals you can’t get for less than 150 dkk, or $21.55. Crazytown. And that’s without drink, soup or dessert. Good thing I brought some PBJ from CZ.
3. It’s one of those countries that frowns on opportunitistic New Yorkers looking to cross when the light’s still red
Update: I have learned that jaywalking can cost you $145 (1000 dkk) if you are caught.
4. I hear more English than Danish, but see more Danish than English on signs
I’m a little confused about the culture of the place. It’s nearly overrun by tourists (myself included).
Danes speak impeccable English, but how does anybody survive here financially? Yet the cafés and restaurants are always full…
