it's gonna be a long cold winter
but until then, i'm making the most of what's left of summer. tomorrow it will already be september. can you believe that? i sure can't. i'm going to go to sweden for my last week of holidays. i'll visit my host family in the country and one of my best friends in the world in göteborg, and hopefully go kayaking with her. i can't wait. i need some nature, although i've had small tastes of it in the last few days: yesterday i went to a town a little north of copenhagen called klampenborg, which has the world's oldest theme park, bakken, and a huge park through which elk roam freely. so i went to bakken with some other exchange students (more stoked on the people-watching than the rides after a long saturday night) and then we wandered around the "woods." actually, i think it is fair to call the area woods, or a forest, because the park is so huge. and like i said, there are elk there. they're not fenced in or anything, so if you want to see them, you have to find them. which we did, tromping through nettles and all just for a glimpse of some impressive antlers. it was a nice afternoon, and a good way to end a great weekend. i spent my weekend with my flatmates - maybe, at this point, i should start using the word friends - on friday night just hanging out in our kitchen, then at a barbeque at someone's apartment on saturday. it was very hyggeligt, with candles, music, lots of beer and wine, grilled chicken, and even corn on the cob. yum!
