Looking back...

Now that my stay in here in Copenhagen is coming to an end, I am realizing once again how glad I am that I had the chance to come here. I am not exaggerating when I say that going abroad was the best decision that I made while at Caltech. Coming here was a really fun, interesting, eye-opening experience that I will never forget about. Moreover, I think that this trip to Europe is just the beginning of many other experiences that I am already looking forward to. I had such a great time here that I know I will return here, and explore other places whenever I have the chance.

Danish Food

Food is definitely a big part of every culture. The authentic foods you can find in different countries usually reflect the habits and lifestyle of that particular culture. I’d like to devote this week’s blog to Danish food. Danish cuisine is not as exotic and different as various kinds of Asian and Middle Eastern foods that I have had before. What people regularly eat here is not very special at first sight. However, there are many typical Danish dishes that I have discovered to be quite specific to this country.

Life in Copenhagen

When I come to study abroad in Copenhagen, I experienced a huge change in my lifestyle. My normal weekly routines that I was used to did not fit into the Danish way of life, and I had to adapt to a more European lifestyle. One major change was that I was no longer constricted to a single university campus (like in Caltech). The University of Copenhagen is located in the City Centre, and has multiple campuses for each of the departments. Contrary to what I was used to, these campuses consist only of classroom buildings and libraries. Unlike colleges in the US, the Universities here do not own any dorms and are not so enclosed in their own campuses.
