Final comments
I really enjoyed my Eramus experience in Demark. I enjoyed so much that I repeat this year again. It is a calm country but for me it is perfect. I have made good friends and it was an experience I recommend to everybody. Watch out!!! It is very cold and not much light but if you do not care much about this you will find out a wonderful country.

Use the bicycle as much as you can!!! Only drink beer. Try to do your shopping in cheap supermarkets like Netto, Fakta or Aldi. Fotex is midle price but really good products and a large variety.

Personal comments
Housing depends very much on the luck you have but it is very difficult to have something good and is always expensive. I was not very lucky first and then I found some other accomodation independently. I have always lived in the Campus but first I was in a place everybody calls "containers" so you can imaging how was that... Then I moved to a typical residence for danish students using the subletting procedure. I was more comfortable there and I payed less as well.
