Firstly we had to be at 8 a.m. in Virum Gymnasium in order to go to the ice-skating place where a lot of us ice-skated ! Even the teachers did !
After an hour more or less of skating , we had to leave the ice rink, and thanks to the teachers we were so happy : they bought us a lovely and tasty hot chocolate ! So thank you to the teachers again for this present because it was really kind of them !
Then we arrived at the Round Tower, an old and beautiful building from where you can see a panoramic view of this
awesome city; Copenhagen. It was somewhat delirious the way we climb to the top !
Then we ate and the teachers allowed us to laze around with at least one or two fellows -We saw nice shops such as Disney store and Lego store too. The meeting point to come
back to Virum Gymnasium was the city hall as usual !

Today we first went to Copenhagen Central Station where some people changed euros into Danish krone. Then we had a tour of Copenhagen by bus. We saw the Little Mermaid where we took a group photo and we also saw Tivoli, the opera house and the city hall.
After that we had lunch on the square of the city hall and stayed there for an hour. Then we walked to the Experimentarium where we stayed for 2 hours. We played different games like curling, skiing, water games. It was really cool. We had a good afternoon. We felt like children.
Then we went back to school and with our penpals we prepared some food to eat for the Danish-French soirée at the school. It was really good to see what Danish people eat. During the soirée, a Danish teacher taught us a typical dance in Denmark.

For breakfast we ate bread and butter with a drink of milk. Most of us come to school by bike. First, we were in a Danish lesson in the conference room. We had a presentation about “Global Warming”. There were 108 Danish people. At 10 o’clock, we took the bus and went to Humlebæk to visit the Louisiana Museum. We saw the landscape with the sea, Øresund. We took some group photos. Then, we made two groups. The first group went with the tour guide of the museum and afterwards the creation of a statuette in the style of Giacometti. The second group started without the guide and afterwards the creation. The guide spoke about the story of the Louisiana Museum and its architecture. We saw many bronze sculptures. The first sculpture was a “Bird” called “Le grand assistant” by Max Ernst. He sculpted it for Pablo Picasso. The second sculpture was a giant woman who was very thin and called « La dame debout » by Alberto Giacometti. We drew her figure. Moreover, we created a statuette with wax and imagined a story around it. It was a very good visit and day. We were very interested in the sculptures and the paintings. The guides were very friendly. We all enjoyed the visit very much.
