Famous Danes

Yesterday we had dinner with an American couple who couldn't name a single Dane they ever heard about!!!

Well, here it is, the list of famous Danes: Famous Danes according to Google

It's funny that high profiles like Brigitte Nielsen, Bjørn Lomborg and Whigfield (yes, WHIGFIELD) are ranked higher than any of our royalties.

Back in DK for team building

This is me and a ranger (Carsten Mørk). It seems that he is trying to teach me something about teamwork, but I can't really remember.

Anyway, I was back in DK for a team building thing with the company. Great weekend! A lot of new faces. Must have been 20-25 people I didn't know because they started after I left for Ukraine. This company is GROWING!!! Posted by Picasa

Womens club in Kiev

The International Womens Club in Kiev (IWCK) finally got a website:

This club is fantastic. My wife is a happy member, and most of our social network and activities are related to the people we've meet in this club.

They do a lot of charity as well. Check out their site!

If you are planning to stay in Kiev for more than a week, I seriously recommend the book: "Kyiv Survival Guide". It's simply a must-have if you haven't learned the local language yet!

Happy birthday

We were at Mattias' and Lucas' 3 year birthday party yesterday. About 30 internationals showed up to celebrate. It's always fun at these events. The kids are having fun, the adults are socializing and networking. It's just a great way to spend the Saturday afternoon.Liz and Dan were hosts at this great party. Thanks guys. We had a lot fun.

Kindergarten in 5 languages

My daughter started in her new kindergarten this week. It's sort of a French/Ukrainian kindergarten and it is NOT allowed to speak Russian. So, we basicly added two more languages for her to handle. She's good at Danish, good at English, she knows some Russian and now they are going to speak French and Ukrainian to her too!!! I think I would be confused, but she seems allright.

Most of the kids there are internationals, and it is very impressive to expirience how all these small people handles languages.

Book review: "Raising a daughter"

I just finished reading the book "Raising a daughter", which is kind of a study on the difference between boys and girls and some guidelines on what to be aware of when raising your daughter.

One of the main points made in the book is that boys need to act more where girls need to talk more - the book itself is an excellent example of that fact (400 pages)!

Our nanny stays!!!

The day before we left for Egypt, Frejas nanny (Olga) told us that she had been offered a great teaching job at Kyiv International School. A wonderful oppertunity for her, but as you can imagine, sadness immediately spread in the family.

But guess what, when we came back to Kiev, the phone rang, and Olga told us that she really wanted to stay with Freja because she just likes her so much.

I'm on your side Olga. Freja is just the greatest kid in the world, and she could also make me pause clever career moves.

Relaxing in Egypt

Just came back from a great week’s vacation in Egypt. Finally a hotel that’s actually better than the marketing brochure.
