On Saturday we met at the school for a tour of the town. From the school, through Bø, and back took altogether about 30minutes. Bø is a very, very small place. When we returned to the school one of the guides showed a few of us the closet where they have kitchen wares that were left by previous students. We all crammed in there, searching for what we wanted. Things I got include: mixing bowl, whisk, cutting board, chopping knife, bread knife, fork/knife/spoon, plate, bowl and a can opener. Pleased with my findings, I walked back my room to drop those things off and headed with Hanna down into the city center. On Friday we had seen where the foreign food store was and were eager to get there while it was open. It was so nice finding familiar food. I bought a few of my staple items, sweet chili sauce, curry, tofu, Siracha's, etc... We wandered around a bit more, getting more shopping done, attempting to stock up on the basics. The one unfortunate thing about needing to buy "the basics" is that these things tend to weigh a lot. On our way back Hannah was a very clever navigator and found a couple short-cuts to the main road where we cross to head up the hill to Breisås. By time we reached the top I was SO ready to collapse. Walking around all day, not eating much and carrying those heavy bags took it out of me. I regained my strength enough to make myself some curry soup for dinner.
I got to chat on skype with my mom and David that day. Familiar faces are always nice to have. I fell asleep shortly after talking to them, but was soon woken up by a knocking at my door. It was my housemate and his girlfriend. He had seen or heard my guitar and was wondering if I wanted to play with him (he had his keyboard in his room). Though I was too tired to make music, I got to chat with them for quite a bit. It was definitely worth waking up to make new friends. I even got to practice my Norwegian a bit. I am slowly becoming more confident with it.
