Vakker

Vakker = Beautiful / Lovely

Just one photo from Wednesday – a cold but beautiful sunset, eclipsed only by my cold but beautiful wife!

Oh, and a quick update on words for the Lent / Easter season:  apparently the word “skjærtorsdag” is from the old Norse word skíra – meaning “to clean”. Hence the literal translation is not “cutting” Thursday, or even “shearing”, but rather “cleansing” or “purifying”. If your Norwegian is up to speed, there is an article here. Thanks to Christopher for this information.
