So the Italian couple left me in the center of the villages and I went to get a map at the Tourist office to find Anne's house and walked there as it was pretty near. Then I knocked at the door and its her boy who opened and got quite surprised.
Then Anne appeared and welcomed me to her house presenting me her children and talking to me a little and offering me some breakfast as they were just finishing. Afterwards, by mid-day Anne needed to go do some grocery as she was getting someone over for dinner and we went on and she also had the idea to stop by the local newspaper to try to promote Hospitality club (www.hospitalityclub.org) and we did so. The journalist told he was going to pass by in the afternoon and so we went back home
The child woke me up for dinner and we went to the table. Hassane who was from Niger and spoke french as well (he had been to Montreal in the 60s) came over and we talked while eating while the children simply gobble their food and went back to play :)
The rest of the evening has been pretty calm and we chat, me Anne, Hassane and another of Anne's friend and play card till later by night until it was time to sleep. It was pretty great for a calm social evening.
In Lakslev... the view was pretty amazing as well from the house with the steep mountains surrounding from the Fjord valley... soon I would see my first real norvegian fjord!
