26 Jul 2008 – Safely in Oslo
Poor Ellie, she threw up at Schiphol Airport (Amsterdam airport) and on the plane here but was in good spirits upon arrival. Baggage did not make the flights. Met them at Gardemoen (Oslo Airport), took the Express Airport train into town. SAS loan Linn a stroller which Katy could stand behind. It was such a lovely day that we decided to walk from the station across the Royal Castle’s grounds and park.
Their baggage was finally delivered before midnight. The girls slept until 1000hrs this morning. Woke them as their grand-aunt Cathrine, (Katy is named after her) Linn & May‘s aunt from their father’s youngest and only sister was on her way to pick them. Katy & Ellie are dressed alike (thanks to Jeff‘s sister, Kristy’s tasteful design & work). I used to also dressed Linn & May alike for special festivals. Today there will all be about 30 of the Hald family gathering to celebrate John Hald’s 85th belated birthday. Pity that May is still in China and Jeff & John W will not arrive until next week.
All men whilst they are awake are in one common world; but each of them, when he is asleep, is in a world of his own – Plutarch
