Milli travels

På toppen av Fredrikstad

I don’t think Milli had ever been to Fredrikstad before we went there to visit Caroline (remember her? >>) who lives and works in the old part of the city. Old Fredrikstad is actually shaped like a star; you can see it on maps and pictures from above. Milli didn’t visit any museums, but she enjoyed the cobblestone pavements and the tree houses with secret gardens, and most of all the parks, very much!

Kjære Caroline jobber i Gamle Fredrikstad (Gamlebyen) i sommer, og Milli ble  invitert til å besøke henne. Jeg ble med. Vi utforsket et par bortgjemte hager, usynlige for folk som vandrer langs brosteingatene, med mindre en port tilfeldigvis er åpen slik at en liten hund kan bli nysgjerrig på grillduftene som strømmer ut. En logrende pelsdott får tilsynelatende alltid en varm velkomst. Milli besøkte ingen museer, men hun fikk snust på noen statuer og en kirke. Jeg tror hun reiste tilbake til Drammen fornøyd.

I’m officially a journalism bachelor and installed in my new apartment in Drammen. The stress of the last couple of weeks has abruptly been replaced with holidays. Not that I should be taking a vacation – I should be searching for jobs! But the weather is! Perfect for exploring my new town! And so far, I’ve found these amazing mirror balls. They’re placed on the opposite sides of the Drammen river, and not only can you mirror yourself in front of spectacular fisheye-views – the balls make sounds too! They calculate the weight of the people crossing the bridge and make eerie noises! I realize I’ll have to tape it one day, but in the meantime:

A world within a world

You could call the whole Haiti that – a world within the world. Yet this is a country with vast differences, the world you see solely depends on where you are. And I’m happy to have been to the Seguin area, and Park La Visite, a national park that’s just so… so… :

Mist and sunset above the clouds

And Fondation Seguin definitely deserves a big THANKS for trying to protect this magical area, and for bringing me up there 🙂
