Hanging around Oslo

Today mostly I did nothing in the morning and then it takes forever to get to town from the cabin, so I only had time to go to one musem.

Then I saw the statue park in town.

On my way back, I picked up a whole lot of sushi and we all shared it and had a feast.

Bus bus bus

Well we got up before the sunrise to catch the bus and it never came. So I was upset at Bertram again. The bus eventually came an hour later which was fine. However when we got to town we found out that the boat we wanted to take actually left at 930 p.m. not 930 a.m. like I thought the lady on the phone said. However. there was a bus leving in 10 minutes which was a lot cheaper and took many beautiful ferries anyway. We dont need no stinking hurtigruten.

On the bus mostly I just watched the otherworldly mountains amd shimmering lakes go by until the sun went down. It coordinated well with Tori Amos and Morcheeba for some reason.

A couple of our couchsurfers cancelled on us so we stayed in the middle of them in Bergen for the night. When we got there. the bus driver told us to go the wrong way to our hosttel.

Nothng day

At first the day was looking nice for a bike ride but then it wasnt. It started looking rainy so we did laundry and decided to stay inside. We burnt a lot of wood and I read most of the rest of Lord of the Rings. Cannot wait until t is finished. It is quite possibly the lmest book in the history of books. Wealso ate some gross sausage we mistakenly bought wit potatoes and cheese and cabbage. Yum. Yeah.

Oh and Bertram continued to be annoying. Putting us to work cleaning his house before a couple of clients came. Which is fine. but not something I dont think I would do to my surfers...And showing us some of his beautiful woodwork. Which was nice.

We went to bed early to make an early bus out of Molde.

One good thing about Bertram is that he would call my dad out when he was being particularly difficult to deal with. At least I.m not the only frustrated one all the time.

First night with Bertram

OK so the first impression I had of Bertram was not so good. When I caled him from Leen.s house. he was telling me to "just relaaaaax" when all I wanted to know was what time the last bus to his house arrived... sigh. so we went anyway.

In the morning we walked the length of Trondhei and watched some ducks then ot on the train. The train was long again but also beautiful scenery. As a rule I do not take pictures out of moving vehicles. I am alwas disappointed. Sorry.

When we got to Molde Bertram was waitng there with his weird truck. I sat in the back with bunch of woodworking and fishing equipment with no seatbelt as Bertram sped arund the windy roads. Terrifying.

When we got to his house. he began to tell us stories about how he thinks domestic abuse is just a "process" to work out disputes and also how he once ran over some guy's feet with his car. Great. So anyway. I slept well dspite my rational mind telling me to run away.

In the morning we went out to dig worms and then we bought some food for the weekend and went fishing.

He only had two life jackets on his boat with the motor that doesnt always start. I made sure we had both of them on.

The sea was very rocky and he we came to a little bay where we ate some fish stew and Bertram told us of all his conspiacy theories about emergency evacuation plans for only smart people to the moon after the earth explodes. He also said he saw a UfO and isnt it a shame that you are labelled a raving lunatic by everyone who hsnt seen one.

OK now I am ready to go back. Thank you for the lovely boat ride.

Dad and Bertram yap away drinking pear cider and then I go to bed.

Hippy towwwwwwwwwwwn and a big church

Today was another great alone day. I went to a really old church where you can imagine a whole bunch of heathen pagans being converted to Christianity one by one just based on the imposing and intimidating architecture of the place.

Then I was off to find a secret squatter village which was a lot cleaner and orderly than I had initially imagined.

I went back to meet Leen but his landlady woulldn.t let me in so I sat there shivering like a lost cat while drinking Julbru. Christmas soda. It.s disgusting dont even try it. When Leen got back we went to a microbrewery place where we tried every single beer for still a lot of money but I guess it was a deal in Trondheim.

After dinner we went back to hippy town where I had heard of a little show happening. It was Dresden Dolls esque but in Norwegian. But we were late and it was soon over. The drummer drummed like the drummer in Green Day.

I think we went to bed after that.

Leen's house

The next day. Petter said goodbye to us. Klara had already gone to work. We walked around on another path until 2 p.m. also killing time in some stores. My clothes came back remarkably clean and we headed off for Leen.s house in Trondheim. The train there was very beautiful but apparently we missed the best parts because it was dark.

Leen met us at the station and he made us dinner and then we went to a cool underground literally bar where we paid 10 euro for a beer. But it was really good beer. Complex you might say mmmmyyyyessss. *Dramatic twirl of mustache*

There are a lot of steep hills in Trondheim. But I lovve it anyway.
