God dag, 2008!
What a night! We went to some of Allan's friends for New Year's. Many of them were artists or other creative types, and we got along famously. We ate amazing food, had a juggling show, and then the fireworks. I have never seen so many fireworks at one time... the show went on and on and on. At 11:45 things really started cooking outside, so we got our shoes and coats on and headed out into the yard. We had a view across the river of all of Trondheim, and the fireworks were exploding all over, continuously, for about 45 minutes. In every direction and directly overhead, all manner of multicolored explosions... I had seen nothing like it in my life. It got to the point that it seemed like fireworks gluttony. Holy cow!
Finally, it petered out about 12:30 and we went back inside. The kids were crashing so we reluctantly left our new friends and headed back home.
Godt Nyttår, everyone!
