Stiklestad

We have two exchange students from Germany staying with us for the week. We fetched them from the airport on Sunday and they'll be here until Saturday. Our house is very small and we tried to say 'no' to taking in extra people, but the school grew desperate and we relented. The floor in Maggie's room is now completely taken up with an inflatable mattress.

I slipped out of town on Monday for an overnight work seminar in Stiklestad. Stiklestad is the site of a famous battle where King Olav II Haraldson died in 1030. There is now a conference and culture center at the site where viking battle reenactments are done.

We had good meetings and good food, and it was nice to be able to retire to my nice quiet room away from the noise and chaos in our little house back in Trondheim.
