And as usual, the internet crashed. So, I fought for a few hours to wash my clothes. It took me about three hours to get a washer. Doing laundry here is horrible as there are only 4 washers for the whole building and there are some crazy tenants that stake out the washers for half the day. Well, I got one load in so at least I have clean pants but I had to give up on getting a dryer for awhile.
I headed to school and managed to get all 200 photos from the past week up. Then, me and Tommy headed to Tivoli to check it out. This is only the second year Tivoli has opened for Halloween. And by open for Halloween, it closes officially tomorrow, which is a tad bit early. It seemed that everyone decided to go today so it was completely crazy. All the rides were up and running. In fact, they had 3 NEW rides. I don't really know where they dug up a new chair ride and carousel, but they are promising these rides will be up through the Christmas season.
We didn't stay long as there were way too many people but it did get me excited for Christmas at Tivoli as Halloween isn't anything (or so I've heard) compared to it. For Halloween, everything was decorated. Then, they set up about 40 different stalls selling everything from hats and warm clothing to Halloween costumes to candy. There were food stalls selling donuts, hot chocolate, crepes, shawarma, chinese food...basically anything you can imagine. For Christmas, they are open for a month and a half so hopefully it will be less crowded on a daily basis. Also, they are turning Kongons Nytorv into a giant skating rink. As my Jewish professor told me, don't try to go to a Shabbat dinner around Christmas day, because no Jews in Denmark are really Jews on Christmas.
