This is what you can look forward to at 3:32pm on any given day between November and February. Darkness - So cozy! A Berliner weighs in on what it's like to visit Copenhagen.
Having glorious visions of living in Copenhagen while studying architecture? Check out my handy guide for harrowing tales of what it is REALLY like to live in CPH and study at the Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole.
Every time I need a good long laugh, I read the 'livable cities' article in the Monocle. For a while, I've suspected that Denmark is in league with The Monocle, which constantly features Copenhagen as one of the top 10 most livable cities. The Monocle is one of the reasons I decided to take my masters degree in architecture in Copenhagen. I trusted the Monocle.
The Monocle lies. Through its teeth.
Lets compare Berlin and Copenhagen, shall we? I promise to give CPH credit where credit is due: when you take away the concept of 'Danish ethnicity', the city is only about 60% bad.
Danes can't be worse than any other country when it comes to drinking... and certainly not the Brits, Right..? The WHO rips your quaint notions about drinking in Denmark a new one.
My portfolio is finished and my living situation is driving me batshit insane. Have you ever lived with a real, actual pig before? Or even thought about it? Well just don't.
RAGE!, bicycle tire air, and changing your address.
One day I'm going to start a blog called urban interventions and post pictures of stuff people do to alter their living environment. Hopefully it is not in Denmark because if it is then the only pictures will be of garbage.
I have managed to get a room in a Danish House of Horrors. It involves a living, breathing pig, multiple taxidermized rodents, and a photo of the Blessed Virgin hanging above my bed. Oh, and that is just the beginning.
