17. mai

The 17th of May is the biggest public holiday of the year in Norway. All the Norwegian go crazy! They also dress up in funky traditional costumes. The girls wear striking little outfits called “bunad”. I headed into town to meet up with Marte and Ingvild, plus Baiba and my work colleagues Kaspars, Ron and Marco. A little rain shower dampened things a little bit, but the streets were still filled with partying Norwegians 😀
