I gaar, I dag, I Morgen
Yesterday (i gaar)we got a chance to spend some quality time just with A&J, and it was great fun. We learned that Danes picnic anytime, in any weather. We had coffee and cookies in a rain/hailstorm on the way home from Fyrkat in Hobro. Today (i dag) we saw more of the surrounding countryside, where A&J have memories, or where A and I have family connections. We also had a big family supper that was dejlig (lovely; delightful). Tomorrow (i morgen) we leave here, a fact about which I am quite sad, and make our way slowly but surely towards Copenhagen again, making some family and tourist stops on the way. It has been a most wonderful time here in Kastbjerg. The family has taken such good care of us and made us feel really a part, not just odd non-Danish-speaking guests. A&J have been the best hosts we could have hoped for, and we've learned a lot of Danish in the process of getting to know them and their homeland.
