Tina then walked us around the harbor as she pointed out some of her favorite places to visit. We walked down the water looking at all of the house boats, a community athletic field, and then we arrive at Copenhagen Street Food, an incredible warehouse of food trucks from dinner to cocktails to coffee! Tina treated us all to a coffee (I told you she was the best!), and we sat outside by the water with blankets. It was the perfect end to our cafe night.
Wednesday I had my first field study with my Strategic Communications course, and what an experience that was! We all met at the institute for the blind and played Goalball together, a sport that's similar to soccer meant for the blind.
We were all given eye masks and taught how to block the ball and shoot it down the court. Please imagine me blindfolded trying to roll a ball into a goal…
The ball had a bell inside of it, so this was how we could tell if the ball was coming for us. I tended to just curl up and cover my head when I heard the ringing of the bell get louder and louder as it bounded towards me, but I somewhat improved throughout the morning!
Our class learned that communication is key when attempting to strategically reach a goal. Through talking to one another and listening for the bell inside of the ball, we eventually got the hang of it.
