More Snow Tomorrow: Surviving winter as a foreigner in Denmark
By Kay Xander Mellish
I’m looking out the window as I record, and it’s snowing again. It’s pretty, but it’s not a novelty any more. It’s been like this for the past couple of weeks, Danish winter weather. Nearly every day there’s fresh snow and ice. When I wake up on winter mornings, it’s still dark, and cold, and I can hear the wind whistling outside my window. Every day I think, ahhhh, I don’t want to get up. But I do. Of course everyone in Denmark suffers a little bit during the winter. But I feel particularly bad for people I can see come from warmer climates, and are experiencing one of their first winters here.
