Determined to leave Barcelona properly I stayed up dancing all night and barely had time to get a shower in before heading to the airport. I opted to take the train instead of the faster bus(?!?) on the chance that I could catch the people I've been rowing with at the station and say goodbye. Unfortunately I missed them.
Met my friend Sof at Heathrow (where I had a couple hour layover). When I had made arangements to meet her I hadn't thought about having to go through customs, so that ate up a lot of our time. Still managed to have lunch and a beer (at the airport), and it was nice to see her and get caught up.
Tove met me at the airport in Oslo. She and Einar were having a diner party which I was priveledged to attend. Diner was traditional Norwegian fare (Rake Fisk, 3 types of smoked salmon). Not only did I try the Rake Fisk (basically aged raw trout), but I enjoyed it (even had seconds)! The dinner was verry nice, and festive and made me feel better about missing my traditional Christmas diner.
