We have been standing still today to celebrate Christmas, which we celebrated in a traditional Norwegian way with rice porridge for lunch and pork (“ribbe”) for dinner. And of course some linie aquavit. Kjetil and Einar have also replaced another differential (#5) that broke on 23rd December. Preparations for Christmas went on all day and we had a very nice traditional Norwegian dinner in the evening. Surprisingly many gifts had found their way to the deep south.
