Today was the lecture day. We spent 7 hours in lecture! A total of 4 different professors lectured. Hans Thorsen, Sonja Ekker, Ole Jakob Sorensen, and Bill Ganzlin. We wrapped up the History of Norway overview with Professor Thorsen which had started on Tuesday, and then proceeded into more of the Geological and Environmental aspects of the country and how they compare to Minnesota. We discussed the agriculture of Norway followed by the Geology, Climate, and Vegetation of Norway. This lecture was taught by both Professor Ganzlin and Professor Ekker and it provided a nice comparison of Norway to Minnesota. After another amazing lunch (This time lasagna) we were back in the classroom to finish up the geological discussion. Professor Sorensen lead us for the last two lectures, Environment Policy and Management and Hunting and Fishing Rights of the Norwegian public. Professor Sorensen joined us today as did Professor Thorsen, and neither disappointed on the second day. Professor Sorensen told amazing moose hunting stores and even offered us a spot in his car to join him when he goes to Sweden this weekend to check on bear cameras setup in the Swedish woods. (Check the blog soon for an update!) After all the day in lecture we had the last meal of the day with probably the best dessert served yet on this trip. It was ice cream served with a bowl of warm berries: the taste was amazing! After dinner Professor Thorsen joined us for a hike. Initially we were thinking this hike would be a stroll up the mountain behind our apartments, but we soon found out this was serious climb. We were introduced fully to the fitness of the Norwegian people as they went running past us, up and down this very steep mountain! Once we got to the top it was all worth it however due to the amazing view, and some of us including Professor Ganzlin got recored by a local professor in broadcasting! After enjoying the view at the summit we walked/slid down the front side of the mountain. We nearly tumbled out into an archery range, but got our bearings right and walked around back to the apartments. After much needed showers most turned in early in preparation for the excursion to Tautra the following day.
