My Life in Denmark

I've lived in Denmark for more than 12 years now, and I like it very much. As an American, however, I am a perennial target for complaints about U.S. foreign policy, eating habits, and the inappropriate behavior of characters on American sitcoms. Danes particularly enjoy delivering these lectures when I have a beer in my hand and am trying to relax.

Needless to say, I have my own issues with Danish culture, and in fine American fashion, I have figured out a way to make money off them. Some of the articles below first appeared in BT, Denmark's most widely circulated tabloid newspaper. Please also visit How To Live in Denmark, my new website especially for foreigners in Denmark, and check out my How To Live in Denmark podcast on iTunes.
