Danish Cookies...

Was thinking hard on what can be the title to my first post from denmark...the place which I previously knew was famous for beer, cookies and beautiful blonde women. In my one month here I had tasted the first two and well err..no might be better off just watching the third :).

So now I know a lot more things for which Denmark especially Copenhagen is famous for..first on my list is the cost of living....its weird to find shops selling the same stuff with varying prices. Second on my list would be ..hmmm..drunken peeing in elevators....infact one of my colleague who is pretty interested in getting danish citizenship has got a trick up his sleeve...to be more danish than a dane...Drive a cycle to work, get tatooed, smoke like a chimney, gulp in 15 cans of beer and do the second thing mentioned in my list..voila..you get the green card!!. Luckily no one here is ready to follow his advice.

Stopping my cynicism, this is a very beautiful (but yes at times boring) place to live in. The environment consciousness of the people is historical to say the least..coming from a place where everything goes in a breakneck speed and in a rather loud way ..was feeling pretty lost initially. Imagine no one honking ,cars driving past with the slightest noise(blame it on volkswagen, BMWs and the german engineering), the danish language being spoken without the mouth being opened(no words even remotely resembling an oye or an ayyo) ..I got into this habit of clicking on my ears once a while to check if they are indeed working fine. My only living abroad experience was in New York, which can give a run to kolkata and mumbai on loudness meter and the number of Indians were higher than ones seen in Chennai.


So with life being pretty quite, I should be living peacefully..or am I..Nop not actually..there are enough worries clouding me up as and when I check news sites...like the time I came across a website asking readers to send pregnancy advice for aishwarya rai, people arguing on the philosophical value of delhi belly songs, bipasha basu's single status...phew...tension..tension... now lemme sip some beer, munch the cookies and well what else..watch the beautiful blonde walking across the street...nirvana
