7 AM - Early wake - yeah a pain in the ass but - Alex has to go to work
8 AM - croissant, café, sightseeing - cathedral with the highest church nave and the astronomical (and not anatomical) clock... amazing although they could have turned the lights on so that we can see something not just by flashing our cameras around...
11 AM - time to leave to the airport, wave good-bye to Alex and get some money changed (by the way getting ripped off with 6€ extra bullshit charges and being laughed at to change 70€ for 5 days - yeah well I still got some money left, so who's laughing now? :D)
3 PM - plane's leaving - with 45 min late, because of Sergei, Vladimir and Dmitri who weren't able to get to the check in for their flight to Bergamo

5.30 PM - beginning to hitch-hike, by talking to random folks on our way to the spot, where each and every car has to pass through if going to Oslo
6 PM - almost getting prepared to do the twist again, when a guy stops with a proposal to take us to the closest train station, allowing us to travel a lot cheaper than from the airport

6.38 PM - the train left 2 minutes ago, we have to wait an hour, Frode (yep, that's his name - Frode Lønli - and as he confirmed not because he's a lonly fraudster) offers us to go to his place for tea-time
7.30 PM - after hearing all his stories about his life there are a few things you have to know
- he participated on a three month hard-core training in the Hungarian Kerepesi (not temető, but) church - meditating and training his ass off non stop
- he had an accident like three years ago, so he used the Norwegian system and simply stopped working (yes you can do that) for life
- so he's travelling with his money, and his hobby is to buy old cars in the States, drive around with them, maybe go to Vegas and finally let them shipped home

8.30 PM - arrival at our couchsurfer's place - interrupting him with his sister - yeah they were watching some disturbing psychopath movie
real cool flat! we get to know his sister Rebecca, and his flatmate Marcus, presenting himself with a truly firm handshake
9.30 PM - we have dinner - chit chat - candy and uno time - then time for bed - big day tomorrow
...and I hug my Gandhi pillow stretching out on the floor
