Denmark Day Three

So day three is comings to an end. Over all I think the classes have been good. There are parts of the lectures that I think went over real well, and there are parts that I think went over not so well. When I sit down with the students at their desks and work with them I think we make more progress. Today I tried something new. They have a screen that projects what ever I do on the computer. So I loaded up maya and started animating a shot and let them see my work flow. I think that helped a lot. Animating is more skill then vocabulary, so it is always easer to show them then to say it.

Denmark is great, I have yet to master the skill of ordering healthy food. I thought I was ordering a healthy vegetable sandwitch the other day and it came back with Bacon and smothered in soft cheese. Don't get me wrong, it is good food, but rich. Part of the problem is that I can't read a word on the menu and the waters seem to only know English when I'm around Tim or someone else from the school. So I look for a word that I recognize and point to it. But those words are usually cheese, or names of meat. All I want is a nice salad. I will try again this weekend.

The bread here is truly amazing though.

Allison joins me on Tuesday. I can't wait to show her around. I have the weekend to play tourist. I haven't decided what to do. I'm tempted to go to Lego Land, or the island of Samsø. But I'll have to rent a car to do either. My guide book recommends seeing the cost, I hope I can find a castle.
