Euro to Kroner

June 26, 2008

I arrived at the International Ceramic Research Center in Skaeskor today.  Skaeskor is a small fishing village on the coast of Denmark.  It is such a nice break from the hussle and bussle of Berlin.  The people here are so friendly.  Today deborah and I asked a woman on the street where the center was.  She knew where it was but her Danish was better than her English so she flagged down another person on the street herself to answer and solve this question.  At the center there is around fifteen artists working her and there will be another fifteen arriving for the conference.  The artists here are quite warm.  They have this communal system of cooking that is just out of this world.  Each person has to cook one dinner every two weeks.  So when it is your turn you don’t mess around.  Tonight we had this Oriental salad, Chicken Curry, Spring Rolls with shrimp and mangos, and of course a cup of jo and some lime pie for dessert.  I had a big belly and a grin to match.  Here is a picture of all twenty two of us sitting around eating together.  It was a good introduction to the quality and kindness of this residency.  

Tomorrow I am going to bike around and explore some more.  So I will post some more pictures of the town.

This picture doesn’t quite do it justice, but maybe it will give you a little feeling.

    Ty-Glad to see you made it to Denmark OK. Sounds like the artist community there is very nice and friendly. Went to David & Susie’s for dinner and to hear about their trip. Lake Tahoe was definitely the favorite, with Napa Valley being nice, but San Fransico was a little bit too crowded for both of them, especially David. David is going with his buddies down to Matt’s lake house this weekend. We will have to set up a Skype time, David would really like to talk to you when you both get back from your trips. Keep updating me on your conference. I really enjoy hearing all about it. Nice that you have a travel buddy I am sure. Love & A Big Hug, Mom 🙂
