This afternoon was definitely the most fun thing we've done so far. We were put randomly into groups and sent on a scavenger hunt around the medieval part of the city. Though our legs were aching and we were simply exhausted, it was worth it to walk all the way down Strøget (the longest pedestrian shopping street in the world) and take the harbor bus from one end of the harbor to the other. Not much else to report for today (except for the fact that I am super exhausted and, unbelievably, already have a significant amount of reading to do even though classes have not started yet) so I will close out with pictures.

The Queen of Denmark has guards, just like in Britain!
