All over!

So the sun finally desided to come out on Wednesday, and I didnt have class until 3, so I decided it was good day for a walk, I think it was like 4*C and sunny, which even for Minneapolis in the winter, is really nice! Heres some pictures from the walk. There was an area where there was all this watter melting/freezing and it was beautiful! I kinda went crazy taking pictures!


And heres Trondheim! It's not the prettiest of its sides, but you can see the ocean!

After going to Instrumentation lab I came back home, had dinner, and then went to a Jazz show in the sutent society building, Samfundet, which is kinda like a student union, but with bars, cafes, restaurants and music clubs instead of offices. Here I had Guinness on tap for the first time, delicious! :)


On Thursday a few of us went to club Downtown again, which was really fun! Thursdays seem to be a good night to go out, because the beer is "cheap" all night, and the entrance is free as well! We did however end up walking back at 3am, which involved getting a little lost because we took the scenic route hehe, luckily it wasn't very cold out so it wasn't a problem.

On Friday night Kristin, a fellow electrical engineer who I knew from Minneapolis, invited me to eat a traditional Norwegian dinner with her mom and her sister, which was very delicious and fun, I also learned a lot about Norwegian history and candy :-p

I might have mentioned this before, but theres this bus that leaves on most days, which takes you to Sweden for free, well, to a store right across the border. I was supposed to wake up early yesterday to take the trpi and buy meat, cheese, and beer (they are all much cheaper there), but I overslept! So unfortunately that will have to wait.

Last night I had dinner and icecream with Louisa and Sandra and then we went to some friends apartment and watched Dr. Strangelove, which I hadn't seen in a long time, great movie!

Fun fact: Norway has the highest coffee coffee consumption in the world, at around 10kg of coffee per person per year! I think they are back and forth each year with Finland.
Fun fact #2: There are no Starbucks in Norway!
"Friends dont let friends drink corporate coffee!"

Heres some more ice pictures :-)
