All photos are views from Oslo, from last year's walks (except those two further down).
A day ago there were snow all over, but nothing yesterday -
it is February with rain, and the snow is vanished..
On February 6th it was the Nationalday of the Sami people,
also with some festivity and celebrations in Oslo.
Several Sami people wore decorative, traditional outfits on this day,
I saw a few, and listened to a concert with the traditional Sami 'joik' singing.
Mainly the Sami people live in Northern Norway/Northern Scandinavia,
being a Scandinavian native population, traditionally based on reindeer herding;
today also a lot live further south - like in Oslo - where there are no reindeer.
Lately, I've been reading the old book 'Laila' with my kids,
about people in Sami environments decades ago
(the book was first published in 1881 and a silent movie based on this book was made in 1929).
