15 May 2011 – Bislett Stadium

Sat: a beautiful day for the neighbours to spring clean in Krafts gate neighbourhood! May & Bjørn drove off camping as it is a long weekend and also to avoid the crowd on the National Day on Tue. If the weather holds, they will return by Tue evening.

The world’s largest relay race took place yesterday when 33,880 registered runners ended their race@Bislett Stadium, 2mins walk from where my accommodations are for a few days before moving up to the house. Thanks for Mette’s company to yesterday’s dinner. Decided for a walk to the stadium to support and cheer in the runners on this lovely afternoon.
