Chris in Kirkenes

Chris’ report when he got back from Kirkenes:

“Ugh. It was death by powerpoint. Incredibly boring.”

Pretty much lots of long, looong meetings.

He did, however, ALMOST make it into Russia!

(Kirkenes is the border town between Norway and Russia. Yeah…Norway touches Russia a tiny, tiny bit way up north. The way Scandinavia divvied up their land between countries is very strange…)

They visited an Air Force base where they got to do hardcore stuff like see portable surface-to-air missile launchers and sit inside F-16 jets.

And lastly, they got to tour Norway’s longest tuft hut…
Every town has it’s claim to fame right?
