Holiday Halftime. I was experiencing my usual mid-trip decline in energy and excitement but then Saturday night rolled around. Turns out our Oslo party is somewhat divided as to the proper way to spend Saturday nights. The girls may check out the party scene, Celia is experiencing mild hysteria as she reviews political news from the States while I am feeling a great calm as I continue downloading iceberg photos. When I hear or see the word ‘Trump’ I close my eyes and remember kayaking past a stately blue berg. Or sometimes I imagine the bigger ones as Republican-crushers. Booming and rolling over (which I now know is what big icebergs do) with whole flocks and coveys and herds of Republican-convention-goers going under with each roll.
