May 17th

So.. Norwegian Constitution Day. Hipp, hipp hurra and all that.

We Norwegians had organised a small gathering around 6pm for all the students - some lefse, drinks and a cake courtesy of FINCENT.

A quick speach by the senior Norwegian, a not quite so quick rendering on the how and why of May 17th by me - starting with Harald Hairfair in 872 and ending in 1945 - and then a quick hint to dig into the goodies. Quite successful, especially with the music I had downloaded earlier playing in the background. Took a good couple of hours for the gathering to die out... by which time most of us were once again full.
