I spent the day with my new Danish roommate; she is fantastic.  We planned on going to the large park/recreation area in town but we got a bit lost and ended up walking a half hour down the wrong street; but no sweat because saw some beautiful houses and the entire time we could see mountains and ocean. On this walk we accidentally found the “cheaper” grocery store.  We have decided to share veggies and some other grocery items which will be great because it is much easier to shop for 2 then just 1.  We found some “fiskakaka’s” (fish cakes) for a good deal and bought 2 boxes.  This is a fast and easy meal that is eaten in most parts of Scandinavia; it is essentially mashed up fish and flour squished into balls…. quite tasty.  We made it for dinner; with veggies and a nice Danish sauce she made and invited 9 people over to help us eat it.  Today we also bought some decorations, candles and a plant for our dorm to make it feel a little bit more like home; it looks quite nice now when it’s clean!  Now its time to work on my online UArctic class that just started and then off to bed!
