Denmark!

We’ve moved to Copenhagen! We packed our stuff in a rented van in Geneva in November and drove all the way up through Germany. After 3 months on Nørrebro, we’re now living in an apartment on Christianshavn – I’m working at the Niels Bohr Institute. It’s cold here, but we like it :-)

New site!
