Many public workers are on strike in Norway right now, including sanitation workers. Trash cans all over downtown are overflowing, it looks horrible. I looked around for empty bags so I could clean up a little, but there were none to be found. We picked up a few pieces here and there and tried to make some smaller piles, but there were 6 or 7 cans just like this one in the center square alone. Too bad. I feel bad for folks visiting Trondheim for today only – what an impression they must get of the city.
The game and comic book store was still open, we enjoyed browsing the aisles, watching a match of Magic: the Gathering, chatting with a fellow Rubik's cube enthusiast, and buying a couple of T-shirts (Peter got one that says "ONE MORE BLOCK... ONE MORE BLOCK... ONE MORE BLOCK..." It's a Minecraft reference).
The sun was beautiful and we are feeling relaxed on this long weekend. At home we dug in the garden a bit. Nice day.
