Journal Entry:
Had a huge breakfast at the hostel, which made me sleepy. Spent the morning laying in the sun reading. Early in the afternoon headed down town. Waited for the bus I took yesterday for over an hour before I figured out it didn't run on weekends. Caught the next bus, not knowing where it was going, got to Valby Station, took an S train into town. Walked the entire length of Strøget, the longest pedestrian street in the world. At the end of the Strøget I found a beautiful little canal with a number of sidwalk cafes. Stoped at one of them, settled down in the sun and had a beer. Started talking to a couple of women, Hille and Stine. Stine lives in Copenhagen, and I ended up walking with them back to her place. At her place we drank a couple bottles of wine, had some soup and talked. Hille is studding to be a priest and Stine to be a teacher. At about 1am I left, walked back to the train station and caught a cab back to the hostel.
