It is high time that I did some writing. I'm here in Copenhagen for the next couple of weeks so I need to make time and update this "Why I'm Here". I guess I'll start by writing about my trip out here. I've been in Park City this week teaching a groundwater modeling class. I came home Thursday night to unpack, wash, and repack. My flight left early Friday morning and I flew to Washington (Dulles). After an hour or so I got on an Air France plane and headed over the water. I thought I had a bulkhead seat but it turns out that I didn't. Luckily, I was able to move up to the exit row and that made the trip much more bearable. Had I been able to book my ticket in either the Y, M, or B class I would have been able to upgrade to business class. It is so much more enjoyable flying that way. Stupid movies, but okay food. I don't know what the deal was but shortly after eating a light breakfast, I got really sick and had to hurl. I did make it to the bathroom. That was a first. After that I felt okay and was able to return to my seat. I'll have to be sure to write about my other hurling experience a couple of weeks ago. Anyhow, we landed in Gay Pari. There was NO way I was making my connection but I tried. Getting around CDG is pretty bad. So I had a lovely extra 4+ hours in the airport. I took advantage of the time to rebuild my songs on my iPod. JJ gave me a bunch of new music and I should have lots to listen to. I finally made it to Copenhagen, caught the train, then the metro and walked a couple of blocks to the hotel. I got good directions and didn't have any trouble. I called home using my Skype account. It is so nice to have that. I walked around downtown for a couple of hours. It is a bit colder here than I thought it would be. Stupid American, look at that kid in shorts and flip-flops and we are all wearing pants and coats. I found a decent restaurant near the hotel and ate by myself (one of the crappy things about traveling alone). Well, I'll upload a few pics and then write more tomorrow. Cheers!

Tell me you didn't hurl after going to Granny's in Heber??? The last time I ate there I got food poisoning, I will never return.
Have fun and be safe.

We usually only go there for shakes. Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. Bummer.

Wow, I'm impressed. Maybe in a couple of years my blogs will be as interesting as yours. Well, except for all those cool places, and except all those cool bike rides, and except, well it might not be that cool.
