Denmark is really strange in the good way. We have a world leading economy and we pay 65% tax and security is HIGH and people are very happy (despite a ugly dark winther). Its a big problem that 50% of the workforce in on some kind of welfare - but is also fantastic to see how welfare (taking care of everyone – instead of only focusing of the loaded ones) has taken Denmark to an amassing position. Im pretty sure it would not work in a giant country (USA, Indonesia…) but Im proud here – and will probably give my vote to Willy (foto) or Helle. (Bu would even be more happy if they would also have a look at the TAX System (and lowered it).Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 7 so far )

Here are some pictures of Evan’s street and house NICE.
Evan took me to a Chinese/Thai restaurant – and the portions was very American – but delicious, we had a couple of beers. I was smuggling cigarettes out of the pocket, now and then, and hiding that I smoked. This place seems mentality is very relaxed – no crime (rich neigbourhood?) – But Evan referred very often to the fact that a LOT of people got fired recently – and I have this theory that we haven�t seen noting yet. And I really doubt that the whole it-industry made any value in global economy scale (there are no BIG B2C TRANSACTIONS) – but then again the WEB IS SO YOUNG – and it will come, maybe it will be Mobil eCommerce – this phone [SonyEricsson] make’s me think of a future movie – Seen when i was a kid, off course.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
