Aaron asked Henrik if he could take Thursday and Friday off for my birthday and Henrik said that he could take Thursday, Friday, AND Monday off because of the Easter holiday! It has been so nice to get to spend some time together, after some really long work days. (A couple of nights Aaron got home at 9 pm because of extensive experiments.) Over the break, Aaron has fixed me delicious breakfasts (which have included crispy bacon and a variety of fresh fruit) and we have gone on huge walks in the sunshine everyday. When I say huge walks, I mean walking for 5+ hours, exploring different towns. Unfortunately, since this was Easter weekend, the shops haven't been open for days, except for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon. This includes the grocery store!
A friend of mine from SU came to Copenhagen for a few days with her husband. We had dinner together on Thursday and ended up going to Tivoli together on my birthday. Tivoli is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world. It feels like a European version of Disneyland. (See pictures below.) I couldn't go on any rides, but scoped them out for next time. I know that my dad will want to go on some of the scary rides with me when he comes to visit.
We still don't have Internet at our house, but we realized that we can pick up the the public library's signal at the bakery. So here we are, eating a pastry and checking our email. This has been our routine every couple of days. It is kind of sad being so far away from home on Easter. (Let's just say, we are eating fajitas tonight.) However, knowing how much I love Easter egg hunts, Aaron has proposed that we dye eggs and he offered to hide them in the yard for me to find. What a nice husband!
