May 17th

The parade moving around in town

May 17th is the national day of Norway. It is also the first time Anna could experience this. Therefore we had some friends inviting us over for a traditional Norwegian breakfast, where everyone are dressed in their nicest clothes, drinking champagne and saying hurra hurra. It´s all very nationalistic, but things are like this with young nations and it´s very cozy at the same time.

After eating and drinking for a bit we walked out and joined most of the town in the parade through town, ending up at Svalbardhallen (the gym building) for games, cakes and sausages.
In the evening we sat down on the beach and made a BBQ and drank some local beer...
