Hey trusted readers of my blog. I have not been so good at keeping this up, I know. I have been to busy building relationships. I promised my dad i would write once a week. Has not been so succsessfull till now, not sure it will later either, but i will write now and then so just keep reading.
Vilde and I have been through so much the last month. For the first time sice we came to Nepal we visited the zoo with our close frieds Rachel and Bikram. It was so much fun. I felt like the child within me just leaped out. Vilde and I were fascinated by eveything I really enjoyed the changes that had been made from my last visit to the zoo when i was much much younger. The animals had gotten more space which pleased me.
Rachel and Bikram were exited about seeing the tiger. They said it was difficult to spot it which i found out in a later visit to be true.
After having stayed in Nepal for over two months, dressing more like nepali women became our wish. We therefore wanted to get ouselvs a kurta each. Vilde wearing her first kurta in public, looking more dashing then ever. (Her pants are her own the reason be that the pants that followed her kurta were pink which she was not pleased with. Which makes sense for there were no pink what so ever on her kurta.)
After having had dal bhat for a long period of time, making something more familiar was much longed for. We then decided to make PORRIDGE. In my family it is custom to eat it every saturday which can be too much and I can sometimes get sick of it, but making it here became something much diffrent and I ate it all with much delight.
FIRST VISIT FROM NORWAY
Øystein Ruud came to check up on us which was rather fun, he being our first visit from Norway.
SECOND VISIT FROM NORWAY
Just a day after Øystein arrived my mother came for work related purposes and of course to visit me. She stayed here for two weeks. We had much fun together, and at the same time it felt more safe having her here with the election going on.
We went to Haatiban…..
THIRD VISIT FROM NORWAY
FOURTH VISIT FROM NORWAY
Here we are at our curch , family of God church. This is the youths gathered and exchanging gifts. We had secret santas and all which was very fun.
MORE PREPARING FOR CHRISTMAS

The boys making christmas decoration
Decorating the christmas tree.
A bit more christmas cookies needed.
And me Happy..
We were sad for a while because our christmas tree lacked christmas lights but Frida (Vilde’s younger sister) fixed that for us all. She went out and got some “nepali” lights for us which just made the day shine even more.
Chritmas eve was also spent in our church with our church family were we were served dal bhat which was rather a surprise. We had just eaten “pinnekjøtt” (stick meat), so we were very full, but ate anyways. It was fun and we saw traditional nepali dance and plays and singing. It was a wonderfull evening that went by faster then one can imagin.
Today it is new years eve and i must say i miss Norway. I dont feel like Nepal knows that it is new years eve except some resturants with their “new years eve” menu, but I’m her spending it with Joakim so all in all its good. Vilde and her family left for Thailand on the 26th of December and are celabrating it Thai style i believe.
Well anyways HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
