Hi guys, I hope all my fellow Norwegians had an awesome may 17th. The plan was to blog about mine yesterday and wish you all a happy constitution day – but I couldn’t get in to WordPress. While I did not join any traditional Norwegian celebrations this year, the girls and I did celebrate a bit on our own. We started the day with a trip to Gongqing Forest Park, located a bit outside of central Shanghai. The weather was really warm, around 30 degrees, and the park was beautiful. In addition to beautiful scenery, Gonqing Forest Park also offers various rides, such as go carts, bob carts, a rollercoaster, boats for rent and so on. We walked around for about 3 hours and tried out a few of the rides, I especially enjoyed the bob carts.
The last stop was Barbarossa, a bar and restaurant located in People’s Park, for some live music. The band was playing soul, reggae and even some rap music, all really good. May 17th in China was, in other words, pretty amazing 🙂
