Yesterday it started!

Yesterday morning at nine o’clock I was totally stressed out as I hadn’t yet managed to park my car, and the festival was about to start. Five minutes later I was at my booth, a bit shaky and sweaty, but ready for a long day:)

It’s fascinating to watch all the people coming to such a festival, and a lot of people have come to my booth to watch, and to talk. I’ve been talking all day long, and have met a lot of really nice people, people who love Norway and everything Norwegian. And people who just have to take a photo of me in my national costume, but so far non of them has bought more than a postcard… My prices may be a bit too high for them, or at least so high that they’ll have to think about it for a while before they buy. So hopefully the sale will get better during the last days.

I was totally exhausted when my 11 hours watch was over last night, and I passed out at nine, not being able to do any of the things I had planned, like blogging… So I’ll just do some blogging now before it gets too busy again…

I had a chance to walk around a bit yesterday, as I have nice “neighbors” who volunteered to look after my booth while I took a couple of breaks during the day. It is absolutely fabulous how big this is, and how many people are involved and how many different activities and offers there are. Here is a few photos to give you an idea:
