Norwegians in Chile Posted by on Feb 27, 2010

As most of you have probably already heard, a massive jordskjelv (earthquake) has just hit Chile-8.8 magnitude, det femte sterkeste skjelvet (the 5th strongest quake) since jordskjelver were measured på Richters skala (Richter’s scale) in 1900.  I thought it would be appropriate to write a post about this tragic event because there are many nordmenn…

1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer.  Da jeg besøkte Norge en gang, (when I visited Norway one time), reiste jeg med tog (I traveled by train) til Lillehammer.  I was shocked that this small town hosted the Olympics!  In 2009, the population census counted just over 26,000 people.  The Olympics must have generated enough tourist revenue for decades!  Lillehammer’s…

1952 Vinter-OL Posted by on Feb 15, 2010

1952 Winter Olympics.  As you all know, Vinter-OL are in full swing!  Jeg elsker å se på OL, både sommer og vinter (I love to watch the Olypics, both summer and winter).  I would really love if they occurred annually, but I suppose that would be mye arbeid (a lot of work) and veldig dyrt…
