#192 – Goodbye, Sudan

Sadly, the last male white rhino, Sudan, on the northern hemisphere has died. There are still a couple of females living but the species is that much closer to going extinct.

#177 – Can I Have a Doggy Bag, Please?

There was a big article in the Danish news today about the topic of doggie bags. In Denmark, it’s (still) not normal to ask for a doggy bag at restaurants, even though some have already started offering it.

#168- Styrofoam to Go

We went out with some friends for a wonderful dinner at a local lobster restaurant where we live. I really like this place and as always…it didn’t disappoint us. We had a really nice time and delicious food. In fact, we had too much food, so I asked for the rest “to go” as is customary here.
