I’m running. Going as fast as my legs will take me. Running through a jungle. When I look up the sky is a canopy of different shades of greens and browns. When I look down the ground is dirt and fallen leaves, sticks and large roots. I’m barefoot. My brown toes squish the soft Earth beneath them as I keep going.
During my first weeks in Denmark, I was lucky enough to have a group of wonderful people from my new university organizing activities and events for us international students, with the purpose of introducing us to Danish culture. Among these – between a beer pong tournament and a cooking session – was dumpster diving.
