I wonder how a Ghanaian would see us, knowing we get out of our comfortable homes, into the bush, in a cold, dark, and waterless old cabin, for days on end. I remember trying to convince a friend in Ghana that the use of candle lights at dinner was "cosy" and "romantic" but he didnt get it, as we didnt have light off at the moment...
Aaaaanyway, this is what my sister, her husband to be, my nephew and I did yesterday. We packed food and clothes into a car and went to HIS mother's cabin an hours drive north of Levanger. This one doesnt have lights or water, its by a lake, I think we drank water from the lake?, we cooked on a gas stove (which you dont find in regular households in Norway), and we played poker in candle lights at night and read old comic books, and we went to the toilet in a built on hole in the ground. In the daytime we did the ultimate wildlife Norwegian thing: grill hot dogs on a stick over a fire we made outside. So this was the lesson in Norwegian Easter culture. Here are some illustrations.

Someone stayed up too late and partied too hard :)
Head lights and candles are a must when you need the toilet at night..
Norwegian pure untouched nature... right.
