Rainy summer so far

It has been raining a lot here in the southern part of Norway the past weeks. Luckily I don't have holidays for two more weeks, so hopefully the rain has stopped then...

I took this picture with my mobile at half past eleven in the night so you can see how light it is outside. I really like this time of the year when it is still light outside when I leave work after eleven pm. The picture is taken behind my work in Oslo. Not the nicest view, but it was just to show you how light it is...

Back up north

And then I was back up north again. Only for a short week this time.

I took the picture this morning on my way to work. It's a nice walk through the forest. At this time of the year it doesn't get dark here. The sun doesn't set until August some time.

Men in trees

It has been a while since last time, but I wont bore you with details... Kjetil and I went to his cabin again last weekend. Didn't do very much, but went for a hike Saturday.

In three days we'll celebrate the norwegian national day here in Norway. Every kid and some adults will walk in parades. Oslo will be packed with people, and it will be difficult to find rooms in restaurants. It was much more fun when I was a kid... I wonder when the excitement dissapared? Maybe when there no longer was games to attend. We used to have potatoe race and all kinds of races and games when I was young. That was fun. Maybe I'll bring some spoons and potatoes downtown when we'll meet people for a picnic..

Something strange and a bit scary happend tonight...

I finished work around 9 pm and took the subway back home. When I got off a young girl also got off. She was going the same way as I did, but the weird thing was that she had the same speed as I did, so we ended up walking beside each others all the way to my appartement. It takes about 8-10 minutes to walk.

When we came to the stairs outside my building she even followed me up. I couldn't
remember seeing her here before, but there are some in the basement I don't really know. But she did not go downstairs. She followed me to the postboxes, waited for me to take out my post. I was wondering what she was doing. She didn't say anything, just stood there. She looked normal, and I guess she is about 18 years old.

I walked upstairs she followed me again and walked with me all the way up. When we came to my door she too stopped, I did not want to go inside in case she followed me there too. So I turned towards her and asked where she was going. She answerd "home" with a very silent voice. I asked her were that was, and it was at the stop before we got off the subway. I told her where she was now and she just said "oh" and started walking back downstairs. I asked her if I could help her in any way, but she said no.

I made sure to lock my door properly behind me. But after a short while I thought I'd check if she was still in the building, so I went out and all the way down to the basement, but I coulnd't see her. After that, back in my appartement, I looked and listned carefully to hear if I she was climbing up the ladders some workers have put up outside. I have no idea why she was following me, but I get all these thoughts, like she might be a maniac who will come back with a knife, or she is really scared and thought I looked like someone safe to follow. Or she might psycotic. Strange....and a bit scary.

Easter 2007

It's Easter, and usually I would be at our cabin to go skiing, but this year I have to work... It's good money though, but I would really like to go skiing at least once. I have five days off work next week, so if there is any snow left here somewhere, we might go crosscountry skiing :-)

I did had some days off last week though, so we got to do some Easter activities, like making a small fire and grilling hotdogs on sticks. The girl in the picture is Kjetils friends daughter. She really liked hotdogs, but it didn't really matter if they were hot or not.

I've been to a place with no roads

Last week I had the best days up north. Me and a reporter went even further up north to make some reports about fishermen and the fisher society. We startet driving in the evening and drove for some hours before we came to a place were to locals met us. It had been dark for some hours already, but we still had to drive snow scooters for about half an hour more to get to the place were they live. They don't have roads, so the only way to get there is by snow scooter or by boats. There are about 30 people living there and they are all fishermen. It was such a beautiful place! The top three pictures are from there. After that we went almost as far north as we can come in Norway, to Mehamn. Not a very big place with a lot happening. It's also a fishing comuity. We went to do some filming were the fishermen come in and deliver the fish. The two last pictures are from Mehamn. One is of a boat coming in and the other one is from were the deliver the fish.
