117 push ups and the salut "God save the King and motherland! YES!" by Aksel.
We were also lucky to take part in the celebration of Norway's national day (May 17th) at the Norwegian seamen's church on Manhattan. It was a full house and was the most visited event of all times. Great music, both classical and jazz, Hanne Krog's great speach, hotdogs, ice cream and waffles put us all in the true 17th of May spirit! Aksel and Catharina played the story about "Ferdinand the bull" for the kids and later Johan Svendsen, Romanze and Johannes Brahms, Scherzo for violin and piano during the main ceremony. Thanks to Frode and the Norwegian seamen's church for letting us be a part of this wonderful tradition.
