Next stop, another colleagues house for a luau. Tropical drinks and pineapple and a visit from a surprise guest who put on a comedy sketch for us. We danced to Hawaiian music and reluctantly left for our final destination.
We were thrilled when the bus dropped us off downtown at the docks. We got on a boat and went out to Munkholmen, the island out in the fjord that was an medieval monastery amoungs other things. A monk greeted us on the dock and took us into a tunnel, where the abbot entered with a torch. He was made up to look like he was drunk and delivered a hilarious speech where he joked with most everyone. Then we held hands and sang a silly song as we were led into the monastery to our dinner table.
