Oslo is freezing cold these days, but warmhearted friends sure helps a lot. Colleagues at the printshop are really friendly too, which makes helping them out more enjoyable. The pay is not too bad there either, so I am finally clearing out my old Disastercard debt, and will hopefully be able to get away for four weeks in June/July. The last couple of years have been terrible for backpacking escapes, and I only got away a few weekends which has been quite frustrating.

I hope all is well with you and your family, and I wish you a great 2010!
