Home is where the heart is: Trøndetun

 

Home is where the heart is. That is what they say. And being here at Trøndertun Folk High School, it is very much like being at home. We take care care of our brothers and sisters here and we have fun working in the kitchen.

Every Saturday we have seminars. At Saturday 01. October, we even had a professional cooking seminar, to learn us how to make delicious food like taco and meat balls.

Good food.

The professional cooking seminar taught us to make new kinds of food. Here we are making Norwegian meat balls.

But of course, we are not forgetting who we are as musicians doing what we know best. This is from a performance by the students of the school at Kulturnatt in Trondheim 16. September.

Performing live!

It was really an honor performing with these amazing people and it was really fun!

People are friendly, and I have met many new friend during the first month at Trøndertun. This picture was taken during one of the Saturday seminars.
New friends!I am looking forward to more adventures and to learn more about music and the different lifestyle in Norway.
