Mitt lille land – My little country

If one man can show so much hate imagine how much love we can show together.” – Stine Renate Håheim. (One of the AUF-members at Utøya who survived the massacre) about what happened in Norway on Friday July 22nd 2011.

It’s people like her who makes my country one of the good ones in the world to live in. Not meeting the mad hate of the murderer with more hate but stressing how important it is that we don’t let the hate win. This is something I wish all the world will remember and live by.

Hurra for 17.mai – and WordPress weekly photo challenge “Red”

Red (mostly) flag and a red boat in Bergen harbour on 17.mai.

May 17th is the Norwegian Constitution Day, celebrated with childrens parades and lots of flags.

Green glimpses of Norway

The last few weeks we’ve been touring southern Norway with our American guests. It strikes me that there are three things dominating most of the lovely natural views we’ve seen; water and the colours grey and green.
