On the 8th of June 2011, Arild and I went to Oslo to parttake in the Award Seremony for Fulbright Grantees 2011 🙂
We got in early – at 7 am – and went to a cafe and just hung out having coffee, chatting for a couple of hours while we waited for our Visa Interview at the US embassy at 10. We went to the Fulbright office first with our stuff, and then joined the CRAZY line in front of the embassy, where we stood for almost two hours waiting to get in!
Luckily, we were joined by a lovely couple from Skien that were going to the US as well next year, the husband being a Fulbright Grantee as well!
After the Visa Interview, I had to to go the Foreign Ministry for a 4 hour information session where much of hte information you see in here was discussed to a smaller or even smaller degree – but we were given handouts 🙂
We then got ready for the seremony, and these are some photos from it 🙂 The seremony was at the Nobel institute in Oslo and we were also given a history lesson there which was very interesting 🙂
