Monday Protests

Lovely weather this weekend

Lovely weather this weekend

I walked past a protest in town today, the very Norwegian thing about this protest was that it had been announced well in advanced and there was a protest protesting the protesters organized. The thing about this protest was that there very few people who had joined the original protest, they where protesting against letting muslims in to Norway. The people protesting the protesters drew a lot more people, the original protesters was even outnumbered by the police by at least two to one. The last due to heightened security because of the terrorist attack in Denmark. I find the protesting group a bit hypocritical when they say that the muslims are the largest terrorist threat here in Norway. I’m not an expert, so extremist Islamist might be the largest threat, but much of their philosophy seem to me to be close to the thoughts of the man behind the worst terrorist attacks in Norway in modern times, Anders Behring Breivik.

This weekend was great, the weather was amazing and there was a lot of fun stuff happening. I got to enjoy the sunshine by going for a few walks, the photos above are taken on one of them. The birthday party was fun and lasted ’till the wee small hours.

Sunday I got up to bake buns for fastelavn and I made home-made “kjøttkaker” translating to meat cakes. I wanted to make som traditional Norwegian food as a proper Sunday dinner for my parents and my brother.
