We've gone through some changes here in Bø as spring starts to set in and the birds are starting to chirp at 3am as it starts to get light around 4:30-5:00 am.
I have been busy as a beaver, of the MSU variety, doing presentations about a local entrepreneurial business, a term paper focusing on atomic tourism, and writing term papers about the importance of "Friluftsliv" and two other term papers on Telemark culture and innovative entrepreneurs.
I was able to get away from school work for a while during our Easter/Spring break. Over a ten day trip, I traveled to five major European cities and had an awesome time seeing and experiencing different countries. My favorite was Rhodos (Rhodes), a small island that is now part of Greece but is much closer to the coast of Turkey. The part of Rhodos that makes it unique is old town, the oldest city that has been continually inhabited in Europe.
Pisa was the last stop before heading back to Oslo. There isn't much to do in Pisa except see the leaning tower and a few other things. Had to great pizza and gelato.

I'm working on plans to get a group of us to go to Oslo for Syttende Mai (May 17), to see the parades and all the different national costumes from across the country. Also currently being planned is taking a trip to the Lofoten Islands right after my last term paper is due (May 18). I will be taking many pictures along my travels across these other parts of Norway and look forward to sharing them here!
