Last november, my cousin Benneth, who resides in Stockholm visited me for 5 days together with her friend Joanna, a filipino living in Germany. Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures of their stay in Norway (because I was confined at the loonyward LOL). I have collected some of her pictures on her first visit to Norway, though.

Synken – Gold Mine (1897-1907)
This mine is not in use anymore but is open to public. Basically, the miners during this period did not have any big find but it was interesting to see how they worked and lived.
A lot of minerals and precious stones can be found at Smaragdgruvene. Unfortunately, we were not so successful on our hunt for wealth.
