We have reached the centre of November and we are still alive. Only 4 months to spring time. So what else to do, but go inside in the cold weather, and enjoy the fabulous night life in Copenhagen. The Christmas beers are in the shops (I am not talking about Tuborg) and soon we will be bathing in Gløgg with to many raisins, and will be eating Pebernødder until we puke. And then we know its X-mas. And The War will be over.
