Well, I and one of the other norwegian girls was supposed to go to the christmas light switch-on show with a Romanian exchange student, but apparently I got the time wrong… At least we had reached the centum before the fireworks started.
It was very different from the event in the park.
You could hear the loud bangs of the explosion, almost feel it, and all the people on the streets stopped to watch. It was really different. And the fireworks coming up from behind the building looked awesome!
Really love the pic above~!
santa on high bikes... and poor reindeers!
Totally not like the Norwegian tradition of speeches, gingerbread and stuff. The parade went inside one of the shopping malls where the kinds got to sit on santa’s lap. In Norway you’re lucky if you see the santa, and really really lucky if you get sweets from him.
Firework from last saturday, finally had time/remembered to edit and upload them:) I have to stop forgetting that I have a blog and that I have something to share. Today I’ve been telling myself “work for 4 hours, get an hour to blog!” It worked, so I have to keep doing that.
Today we are making home-made sushi for dinner, can't wait!
My favorites were the otters, turtles and the amazing walk-though tunnel with sharks and one big turtle! The mirror labyrinth at the end was pretty fun too. As the pussy I am I had to walk thought that with one hand stretched out. No way that I was going to crash into some mirror with people around!
And another favorite part was walking around with M in the souvenir shop at the very end, where I fell for a cute turtle teddy and M bought me it.
So, it’s about time I updated about me and M’s trip to the National Sea Life centre in Birmingham, Sunday the 7th of October. Seems so long ago, but its only 3 weeks! It was so much to see, but too dark to take proper pictures.
Since I just had drowned a cup of black coffee, I had to pee 3 times while we where there. Finding a toilet in that labyrinth of aquariums wasn’t easy! By the way, that crab was really huge. Just its head alone was as big as my hands with finger spread!
There’s a whole life in the back yards that we know nothing about, I’m sure. There are several fat pigeons, a mafia gang of small birds, some mischievous squirrels and one lazy cat here at least. Who knows what bad thins they are up to at night. Because during daytime they are rather cute.
The gang of tiny birds came to hang in our backyard and take a refreshing bath on our roof top after some heavy rainy days.
See, they are cute during the day!
Spot the flying pigeon!
I haven’t yet managed to capture a picture of the cat and the squirrels… Anyways, I’m sure these guys are up to no good when we aren’t watching ;)
