So, Friday and Saturday, it’s been Scandinavian Days here in Ephraim and because of that there’s the Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish and Icelandic flags all over the town. I didn’t go on Friday except for around 10 in the evening when they had about 10 minutes of fireworks and I felt just like new year, and since we didn’t watch any on new year this made me very happy.
Then it was a parade yesterday where I came a little late, but I still got to see much of it, and it was really fun to see. It was not all with Scandinavia, but some were, and it was really funny. Additionally, it was people watching that had dressed up as Vikings or in clothes representing the countries, so I enjoyed looking at that too.
After that, I walked home again and spent some time at home before some friends asked if I wanted to hang out. So, I was picked up around 4 and we were about 10 in total. We hiked up in the mountains behind Manti to some stones and had some fun and got to know some new people from Idaho.
After that, we went home to one of the guys and played some games which was fun even tho I started to get a little tired towards the end. So we left around 7-8.
Today, I’ve not done very much. We went to Bethies house around 12 and were there until around 7, playing games and eating. And now soon my host parents should come home from Israel because they said after midnight and she’s like ten minutes past, so I guess we’ll see if I’m awake when they get home. I don’t really care cause I’m probably gonna talk to them first tomorrow anyway.
Love, Othilda <3
