Thought for the day….” Success is not measured by money, awards or medals. It is measured by the difference between what you CAN achieve and what you actually achieve”.
“You only live once, so do not hesitate. you will miss your chance”.
Amusing story in the news at the moment about the Indian army, who thought that they had been subject to 329 spy missions by Chinese drones. It was found that the sightings were not actually Chinese drones on spy missions, but were in fact the planets Jupiter and Venus. Whilst I would like to visit India, the crazy procedure for obtaining a TOURIST visa has put me off, along with the time and cost to obtain it. The Indian government should realize that tourists bring money and foreign exchange to the country, so they should make it EASY for tourists to travel there, not make it an expensive hassle. Easy decision for me though, until it is quick and easy to get a visa then I will not go there.
An early morning photo of the hills of Norway for the photo today, and a peaceful scene. Norway has 3 languages, Bokmal Norwegian (the main language), Nynorsk (mainly in the west parts of Norway) and Sami (mainly in the far north of Norway). There are more Norwegian descendants living in the USA than people living in Norway (6 million descendants in the USA and around 5 million people in Norway). As in Sweden and Finland, you can only buy alcohol (above 3.5%) in the government operated shops, called Vinmonopolet in Norway. That said, when you see the prices for alcohol in Norway, then you may well decide not to buy. Norway is also home to the largest glacier in Europe (Josteldalsbreen)
