Explored Alesund on my own today. Everything runs differently on Saturdays. The ferry stops running early, most museums are closed, and there was some weird inflatable boat race going on in the center of town.
I also ran into some sister missionaries, which made my day. And some guy gave me a rose to try and get me to vote for something. He let me keep it even when I explained that I'm definitely not Norwegian (although I wish I could be).
Grace spent the whole day making me a traditional Christmas dinner. It was the heat of summer and I had to eat this huge plate of steaming food. Thankfully, it was delicious and I had no problems doing so. I don't know what is in that sausage, but I really wish that we had those in the States because then maybe I would actually eat sausage. It was all good, and I'm sure that it would be even more satisfying on a freezing Christmas day. Perhaps I'll have to come back in December just for that.
