Episode 79: Christmas markets, fitness and family reunification (how do you handle something that is so damn discriminatory non-politically!?)

Episode # 79 - MyDenmarkTV.com from MyDenmarkTV on Vimeo.

In Episode 79 of MyDenmarkTV.com, with snow on the way (it started the day after filming this episode) and Christmas coming, we decided to turn our camera's on Copenhagen's Christmas markets (Christiania Julemarked) to separate the crap from the cool.

  • Crap - a large portion of Nyhavn's Christmas market
  • Cool - Christiania Julemarked. 
Then we really turn up the heat when we answer a viewer's question about family reunification laws in Denmark (familie sammenføring), which appears to be a hot topic. In spite of our best efforts to keep the discussion non-political, it proves to be simply impossible not to label a portion of the rules connected to this visa as highly discriminatory - if not racist. 

We also suggest Copenhagen Theater Circle as a good option for some English theater in Copenhagen, and cover some of the best fitness places in Copenhagen - including perhaps the cheapest - freshfitness.dk (a great deal and great equipment too), and tell you exactly what is what - and why.

An interview with the CEO of Vopium, an international company based out of Copengahen offering a VOIP service for customers around the world helps round out the episode.
