Day Two in Denmark

Arhus Travel Blog

Today, we were invited by Julie (the 2nd of the Raymer children) to go
to her school to talk about the Philippines.  This was a good
experience for the delegation as we were able to hear the Danish speak
in their native tongue.  During our description of the Philippines
(weather, how we say certain words in Tagalog, etc), they were shocked
to find out how hot it was back home and that one of our mediums of
communication was English.  It was certainly a treat and the kids even
got invited to play some soccer during their break.

After lunch at the Raymer household, we were able to go with the
family to one of the malls in Arhus (about a 30-45 minute drive from
malling).  According to Peter, the mall in Arhus was nothing compared
to how our malls are back home.  However, I beg to differ as it seems
to have held its own.

While we were there we were also able to go to a church located in the
main street of Arhus.  Cars are not allowed in this street and as far
as the eye can see, left and right, there were stores.

I was able to get a good rate at the local Malling bank thanks to
Peter.  I gave each of the kids a budget of 200 danish kroners and it
seems like everyone with the exception of Joseph spent all of their
allotted budget.  Claire got a necklace and film for her camera, Marie
got a dress for our camp's formal night, Luis bought a Playstation
2 Star Wars game that he had really been dying to have.  We went all
over the place looking for the game, Joseph was able to spot one in the
mall, it was the only English version of the game as the others that
we saw were in Danish.  And then there is the purchase of Joseph, a
Whoopee cushion for camp *sigh*

On my end, I was able to get a Penguin Pontus piggy bank for free at
the local Malling bank where Peter and I were able to change EURO's
into Kroners.(despite willing to purchase it!)  It's a nice item as it
reminds me of one of our camp energizers called the Penguin song.
