This as our first time to meet the Brune Red Cross Youth; they meet every first Friday of the month. The main purpose of the meeting was to get to know them, share and learn some social activities. We taught them a break dance and they taught us the Arabic dance, which was very cool to learn! They were quite a big group too - 27 youth in total.

Last week , we also joined the opening of a new footbridge between Time and Klepp municipalities on the South side of Rogaland district. The name of the bridge is, "Midgardsormen" (in English: the Midgard Serpent, or the "World Serpent"). The name of the famous snake comes from the nose mythology. As the myth says, the serpent grew so large that the earth and grasp his own tail. Certainly the bridge also looks a bit like a long snake!

It was nice to know tat the footbridge was built through the contribution of the community (in Norwegian: called "dugnad". At least 1 700 people voluntarily contributed in the construction of it, and the bridge was planned a decade ago. Everyone was awarded a certificate of appreciation as part of memory.

The bridge was constructed to make people use outdoor areas even more, and we are certain that they will!
