During the last two months I've been super busy with the sprint finish of gymnasium (~senior high) that is final assesment marks and exams. I between I have of course done other things than school and taken a few nice pictures too, but I've been either too busy or too lazy to do something about them. After returning home to Denmark I've started bothering to do post processing on the photos I take before I put them up, and of course this means illustrating a blog takes a bit longer.
Here's one photo I took of a house in Freetown Christiania. Christiania is a small region in Copenhagen claiming to be autonomous. It's an interesting and beautiful place where people think differently. And some of the architecture there is fabulous. If you ever visit Copenhagen, be sure to see this place. But be aware that in the more populous area of the region, there's a place called pusher street where people openly sell cannabis. This is illegal in Denmark, and while the place is usually peaceful, be sure to pack your cameras away if you go there as the pushers there do not like getting pictures taken of them.
Inbetween exams I went to Copenhagen by myself and slept at a couple of friends houses, eating vegetarian food, squatting (kind of), going to expensive cafés (Copenhagen cafés are very pricy), shopping asian snack food, drinking beer with nerdy university students and visiting this place once again. I actually had 5 exams in 5 days and then a gap of almost a month between those and my last exam, so I had plenty of free time. Used that up pretty quickly, though.
Obviously there has been a lot of school-related activities too. Things such as graduation, parties, hats and of course the driving around the city ontop of a big truck making lots of noise and getting drunk. Just like I wrote about one year ago.
Yes, there is a guy dressed like Super Mario at this party. (It's not me. I was wearing a leather jacket and a bandana.)
Now I'm going to have some free time to cover some of all this stuff that I have been taking pictures of lately. Right now I am just waiting for a response from the University I have sent an application to, so might as well get back to picking up decent photos.
That is also a building in Copenhagen. Fisketorvet.
And this photo was taken this year - not many weeks ago - as I got my chance at the truck riding celebrations.
Exam times have been hard and introspective and has brought lots of change and lots of new interests up for me. So now I have a lots of new exciting things to write about. Probably most of it will still center around special places and events in Denmark, though. And culture stuff. I am looking forward to a bit more of that.
