Being winter i cant imagine i have ever walked without a sweater on my body,it was hard for me to adapt to the kind of dressing in heavy jackets and winter shoes as they are too big and not fancy.i have been told that a few years a go,Kristiansand was not receiving much snow as it was this year.
i really like snow being my first time to see and touch and feel it,
During winter i have realized that all Norwegians are in doors because its too cold, also all Norwegians are big as they put on heavy and worm clothings. skiing is one of the best winter games as Norwegian kids are said to be born with skies on their feet.
i really love skiing.the first time i went skiing,i thought it was easy as it was a matter of sliding on the skis,but un fortunately i fell down 30 times but i manged to at last..
i also tried ice skating,hoooooo!!!!its a good game balancing on those shoes.falling down is the worst as you bang your bat on ice,its pain ful i really felt it.if i was young, i would have cried teers.
it has been snowing for a long time,transport is hard as buses no longer come on time,cars get stark every day.
i remember recently i slept beyond midnight as a friends car got stack and we had to dig up snow for 3hrs,pulling it out was another burden and neighbors were not willing to help as they could not manage the coldness.i am glad we made it at last. some one commented"that is Norwegian winter."
i am looking forward to see it snow no more as i am longing for summer time.

It was on 2/1/2010 when the in field course was exiting to meet my friends after several months a way from each other.that night we shared a lot of funny stories,i wish you were there to listen by your reminded me of the new years eve party which i attended with my friend as i was dressed in a jean and heavy jackets only to find people in suits and party dresses,i was embarrassed but good enough very few people knew me.
i enjoyed classes and especially the question of poverty where we were wandering about Norway being a rich country with its poor weather that does not fever agriculture and people have to store food.yet Uganda has oil,gold,cotton,coffee,tourism and tropical climate that favors Agriculture but still we complain of poverty.
Another question was about foreign Aid with strings attached.i surely enjoyed this lesson.
The challenging question was what will i do when i go back home?its as if i was leaving the next day without a solution to this question.
back to social life and fun,we went was my challenge to dress in a bikini with African boys in the same pool.its not my culture to dress in that way because girls are supposed to dress decently.i would imagine my mother seeing me half snacked in a swimming costume.she would only say <> but it was real fun.walking on a frozen see that i will be fishing in next summer was amazing.

Have you ever rejoiced when it is your birthday,what usually comes into your mind?remember that :-
when you add on years then you are nearing your grave,

Every time its your birthday,think about your destiny when you die.

there is only two places that tha you will join when you die .Heaven for eternal peace and hell for eternal sorrow and suffering.think about it .

when you were born,you cried and the world rejoiced so live your life in a way that when you die, you will rejoice and the world will cry

see you next time
