Gearing up for the 17th of May

Anna has a new bonad. A bonad is a traditional Norwegian costume, worn for the 17th of May or for important events like confirmations and marriages. We saw several men and women in bonads this past weekend, and we'll see more as the country gears up for their independence day next week.

Also at this time we're seeing plenty of russe, high school senior students dressed in red overalls celebrating the last 2 weeks of youth. They'll be doing all kinds of crazy things this week. Like putting a hat on the statue in the middle of the Torg.
