Every Sunday, a group of old ladies meet at "Fellesen," a type of social gathering in the condominium in Solbergelva, where they live. For a few hours every week, they chat, drink coffee and eat home made cakes. Maybe someone knits, whilst others might talk about their grand children, their illnesses or how the world (read: youth and politicians) used to be in the old times. Last Sunday, I watched as they arrived in their electric cars or behind their rollators. Their parking, right in front of the "parkering forbudt" (no parking) sign on the wall made me chuckle, and the knowledge that their evening wouldn't be identical with all the other days in the week made me smile.
