Day 23 - July 4 - DRAMMEN

Today was spent meeting with my mother's best friend Bjørg, who came to Drammen to put flowers on her parents grave. I had gone to my grandparents grave (in the same graveyard) the day before.

The rest of the afternoon was spent in my uncle's apartment looking through piles of books, papers and photographs he had found for me to look through. I photographed everything I thought was of interest, and took with me a handwritten book of family genealogy that my grandfather wrote to delve into more deeply at home. But these two things were a treasure to see.
