1. there are a lot of public holidays in denmark; today, friday, is a public holiday, as was last monday, and the monday before that. on public holidays everything is closed.
2. all danish houses are built from small red bricks, and most have orange or brown tiled rooves. nearly all bathrooms are tiled with brown patterned tiles.
3. danish people are very nice and helpful, and not stressed out.
4. danish houses & public buildings are very clean.
5. danish restaurants close early; yay for the italian cafe in ringkobing, run by real italians!
6. danish supermarkets are slightly chaotic & randomly disorganised.
7. when danish people say their equivalent of "yeah", they say "yo" at the same time as taking a short in-breath. try it.
8. there are good sweets & biscuits in denmark.
