Tonight we had a Bygdedans (Village-wide Dance)!
Yesterday was our final opening day of the summer. It was great to welcome more villagers to the final two weeks of Skogfjorden 2017! Villages arrived, picked new norske navn (Norwegian names), deposited dollars in exchange for kroner (Norwegian currency), and played games. Once everyone was here, we had dinner and talked and sang around the bonfire.
Today, our kveldsprogram (evening program) was Velg ditt eget eventyr (Choose your own adventure)! There was a feud between a troll and human family and the deltakere (villagers) got to choose how the problem would be solved throughout the course of the night. Some chose krig (war) and played capture the flag, others chose to solve the problem on their own and the final group chose to work cooperatively and come to a peaceful solution. The first group to finish their task was the fredlig (peaceful) group, so the two families were able to settle their differences and become friends.
Tonight, we had a debatt (debate) about some real world issues that are prominent in the upcoming Norwegian valg (election). However, these issues were presented as fictional issues facing Skogfjorden and Concordia Language Villages.
This evening we departed for Bukkesjøen (Buck Lake) for the classic Skogfjorden tradition of Vespers.
