Last holiday-day

A reference to one of my very smart moments with Caroline S. Ekeli when I talked about all the birthday-days. This is truly my last holiday as I will be returning to Stavanger tonight. The next 18 days will be all about working, goodbyes/see you laters and cleaning out my room.

We went to the American Embassy on Monday and I got my visa approved. The rest of the day was used to celebrate my sisters birthday in the burning sun. We went to Grand Café, which is a part of Grand Hotel in Oslo. The evening was ended with Sting cake and good company.

Tuesday was an exciting day for Oslo. Actually it was more terrifying than exciting. The American Embassy evacuated the area around their building as they found an object with bomb features. In one of their own cars. This was also the day my sister and her best friend were going to the castle. As a result of the evacuation, that didn‘t happen. Later, it appeared that the bomb was one of the embassy’s own training bombs which they had forgotten to remove after the training. It turned out to be quite a dramatic day as it was only a week after the 1 year marking of July 22, the most horrible day in Norwegian history.

In other news, the ticket to NY has been booked, the deposit and the first rent has been paid and everything is set!
