Sunshine in March

Spring just might be coming this year to Copenhagen! The past week has been the warmest week yet since we moved here. With temperatures in the mid-30s, the snow has almost all melted away. In fact, I (Carla) got lost walking back from my Danish class the other day because I didn't recognize a street without its snow covering! Early in the week, we have a brief snowfall (the snow photo is taken from Bobby's office window), but after an hour it turned into a lovely, sunny day. The sky has been clear and beautiful; Bobby and I are finally getting some vitamin D. I even saw a man on a bicycle wearing shorts! It may have warmed up a bit, but it's still in the 30s! What a crazy man.

Since we are in a new month, Bobby and I got to go out to eat! Whenever we walk around the city, we keep our eyes open for restaurants with special deals or cheap buffets. Last month we ate at a Turkish restaurant with a dinner buffet. This time, the restaurant we went to had a lunch special: unlimited roast beef with a baked potato and grilled ratatouille. Our current diet includes only a small amount of meat, so we were both very excited to stuff ourselves on roast beef! After several servings each, plus 3 trips to the salad bar, we left feeling like we got our money's worth of food. We also felt disgustingly full!

  1. the sun may shine in March but it is never high enough in the sky to give you enough UV to produce vitamin D, our lifestyle also keeps us out of the sun so the only way to prevent all the conditions associated with vitamin D is to take supplements. see, for all the data on vitamin D
