The ice bar

The Sandøya Food Festival was a success! The guests were met by this unusual sight; The ice bar, and got a warm apple and rum welcoming drink to start the evening off.

A chainsaw, a frozen lake and some strong men; you don't need anything else to make a one of a kind bar!

A time of colours!

The Carnival time is here, and this beautiful sight fills my heart with light! My daughter and her kindergarten friends created this wonderful artwork.

The food festival is tomorrow, and our kitchen is pretty trashed from cooking all sorts of food... But flavourings such as cardamom, rose, brown rum, cumin, peppermint, rosemary, espresso, garlic and lemon now wonderfully scent our house.

Decoration for tomorrow: These lanterns were made from jam jars, and from tissue paper.

Sandøya's international food festival

-A food festival with an international flair on our wee, frosty island.
The coming weekend we're transforming our communal house into wonderful place of colours of the rainbow, smells of the world and music of Latin Americas! Also, our beloved men in the party commité are doing a great stunt, can't wait to tell you about it!!
A bit random with the car photo when talking about the food fest. (It's not mine, nice colour though. That's why I photographed it!)  Anyhow, there is ice between the island and the mainland, and some people haven't touched their car in weeks. If we were to get stuck for a while, it wouldn't actually be that bad..! Call of the wild. And ready for the party!
