Denmark's boy

Postado por Camila Rafaela Felippi às 4/04/2014 09:23:00 AM
Did you remember I told you I attended a lecture by a foreign? So, I'll tell you about it...

The speaker's name is Albert Olson Brinecker, he is 16 years old and he lives in Copenhagen, Denmark. Now he is in Brazil as an exchange student in a German citty called Pomerode (near Blumenau, a German citty too). Albert told us about his citty. Copenhagen is so beautiful! The city stretches across parts of the island of Amager and also contains the enclave of Frederiksberg, a municipality in it's own right. Copenhagen is an originally Viking fishing village!
"From the 8th to the 10th century, the Danes, as well as Norwegians and Swedes, were known as Vikings. They colonised, raided, and traded in all parts of Europe. Viking explorers first discovered Iceland by accident in the 9th century, on the way towards the Faroe Islands and eventually came across "Vinland" (Land of wine), also known today as Newfoundland, a province in Canada. The Danish Vikings were most active in the British Isles and Western Europe. They conquered and settled parts of England (known as the Danelaw) under King Sweyn Forkbeard in 1013, Ireland, and France where they founded Normandy
More Anglo-Saxon pence of this period have been found in Denmark than in England" (source). Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the 15th century. It's the cultural, economic and governamental centre of Denmark and one of the major financial centres of Northern Europe with the Copenhagem Stock Exchange. The city has a Royal Danish Family and his government is socialist, part of European Union. Albert also spoke about food and drink! The Danish beer is called Vikings ("drink until die"). To eat they usually have: glazed potatoes, red cabbage, pork roast and brown gravy. It's the classic Danish dish. 
It's good to learn about other places this way! I hope my class can go to a lot of lectures this year!

P.s.: Today is my mom's birthday! Tonight I'm going back to my city, Ascurra. I'll buy an arrangement of beautiful flowers for her!
