Dei 2000-2001 YFU Utvekslingselevane i Noreg.
YFU hosted another get-together for all of the exchange students. This is a photo
Holmenkollen, a place outside of Oslo. The Olympic Games were once held here. This is
a picture of the cafe house. It is built in traditional Norsk style and is very beautiful.
We came to watch the World Cup in SKi Jumping, but sadly the weather was so bad, we didn't get to see much. Nevertheless, we had a
Vigelandparken, or Frogner Park, is a park around Oslo. There's nothing anywhere
else in the world quite like this stunning sculpture garedn designed by one of Norway's
greatests artists, Gustav Vigeland, who is, oddly, virtually unknown to the rest of the world.
You can see my friend, Laura.
The park is full of "unique" sculptures --- Norwegians!!!
Telemarking is style of downhill skiing.
These are some guys dressd in traditional Telemark clothes.
Viss du kan snakke norsk, dei drakk seg full!
Here we are cheering on the cross country skiers. The race was 15km long, and what was funny was that everyone
watching cheered for all the skiers, even the ones from a completing country :)
USA! USA! USA!
YEA! There was one skier form the USA! He received many loud cheers from me!
Since we slept in tents on the snow on this cold winter's day, we had to sit around the campfire at sing songs, mainly child tones!
This was the best part of the trip for me!
Lys (candle lights)
Candles were placed in the snow are markers for us to walk. In the dark of the night, it made a very cozy slight.
I bevieve a Japanese student created this masterpiece. She celebrated her brithday later that night with cake and all!
I think she had a memorable birthday.
