on skis

daily view:
people, wearing very tight very sporty outfits, carrying skis.
in a shopping street in the city center, on the bus, in a supermarket, they’re everywhere.
always on their way to go cross-country skiing.

i am mostly amazed by this extreme sporty behavior.
while sometimes i’m hoping for spring to come,
it seems that most norwegians embrace each new snowflake.
and although – after being here for quite some months now –
i have become a real outdoor lover
(i still had some doubts if i could become one in this post)
i am still far away from the norwegian mentality 🙂
(as in: they cycle on ice, with ordinary bikes.
they walk on slippery icy sidewalks with summer sneakers!
like nothing is happening! and without falling down!)
