A Day of Wonder

Some days, no matter what far flung place in the world I'm in, I find myself doing something quintessentially American. Jen and I had a tentative plan to cruise on a fjord today, but it was intermittently raining cats and dogs so we decided to bag the boat, hope for better weather tomorrow, and go to a movie. Wonder Woman was playing in the next town over (it was also playing in Stavanger, but we decided we wanted to see some place new) so we hopped on a bus, traveled south for about 30 minutes to the town of Sandnes, and got off the bus right in front of the theater. The movie was fantastic -- action, adventure, Amazons. After the movie, we took the bus back to Stavanger and had burgers and fries for dinner in a restaurant where Johnny Cash music was playing the entire time we were there. Sometimes America seems very close, no matter where you are in the world.

when it looks like this...
...all you need is this.
