My thoughts, observations and experiences during my four weeks in Scandinavia through the Fund for Teachers fellowship. I am very grateful and honored for the incredible experience.

Weather didn't cooperate.
Weather never got nice enough for a swim, so I went for a long bike ride (my first time using my Oslo bike card -- free!) and am now getting ready to cook and party with the classmates who live in another neighborhood, Grunerlokka. Grunerlokka is sometimes called the Greenwich Village of Oslo. It certainly has that cool, alternative, young vibe with a great social scene. It is expensive to go out there, like everywhere else, but it will be nice to hang out with new friends and see what the student dorms are like there. They are making Tortillas and watching the World Cup games. I think we'll be going out to the public viewing spot to watch Spain!
