Home, sweet home!

I've spent the whole evening looking for a picture starting with U. Getting more and more annoyed at how hard it was. Not remembering that yesterday was the U-day. Today is V and Very easy. V is for Vadsø , my hometown, where I spent the first 18 years of my life before I jumped on a plane headed for Ghana. It's a small town, far north in Norway, with about 6000 something inhabitants. Here it is in the dark. I live right below the Hill from where the photo is taken. The big lighted area right below is my primary school.

In the next pic, taken from the air, you can see parts of the city covered in snow. The island in the top of the picture was actually the real Vadsø. Vadsø means Water Island, and the first known settlements in this area was on that island, rather than on the mainland. It's a nice place, come visit! :-)

And you describe it so intimately.

Oh, Myne, why? :)

Nana Yaw, do I really? I thought it was very superficial. :-)
