I was lucky to celebrate the holidays with Øistein and his family in Oslo. For New Years we visited my host family in Røros. It was a great way to settle back into life in Norway, with family and friends and masses of good food. I missed Alaska, of course, but was ever more thankful to have a network around me here in Norway as well. Looking into 2011 I hope I am able tospend time in both of my homes, and to cherish those that I hold dear on each side of the world. To see more photos from the holiday season, please click here!
