Bodø Airport is the second largest in Northern Norway, but still it’s quite small.

Doin’ it rite

The national competition of Rock-Paper-Scissors were held in Bodø this year. Fortunately, a colleague of mine fought his way to the finals, and won. “I never expected to win, he said”.

 

Workers of the world, Mobilize!

 

1.mai i Bodø

1.mai i Bodø

International workers day, May 1st. It is celebrated in almost every country, except for the United States (and maybe a few others). They decided to be very special and have their own labour day in september, I think. Or maybe october.

This years May 1st. I spent in Bodø, for the first time. The day is marked here, in the same way as everywhere else in the country. But when the demonstrators walk around the downtown area, the route they chose is completely stripped of logic. I mean, how hard can it be to find a long line of people, probably 500 of them, with their own band, walking around in Bodø. Well, it was harder than I thought, as I was walking around with my camera. Their main parole this year you can see printed on this guy’s t-shirt: Mobilize!

War games

Bodø hosts a group of extraordinary individuals. These are people that gladly dress themselves up in military gear, and they run around in the forest, shooting small plastic bullets at each other. The correct term is “airsoft”, and these guys are spending loads of money on military clothes, holsters, replica guns and military gear. Every sunday (almost), they meet where the road ends, at a place out in the woods, and they play kind of realistic war games. I am spending time with these guys to make a feature story for publishing later this year.
