After I came back to Drammen on April 18th, the temperature outside got warmer and warmer every day. Between 20℃ and 25℃ actually! One day Drammen had the highest temperature in Norway that day. I saw people wearing shorts and t-shirts, some even bikini. In April…! I still prefer long sleeves though.
All of the sudden trees became green. Here are the trees outside my windows.
But in front of the railway station I saw sakura trees in full bloom. I felt like being in Japan!
Many foreigners say cherry blossom. But sakura trees have no fruit. So I prefer to say sakura – to distinguish the trees!
A couple of days later several sakura trees with white flowers were blooming, too.
Isn’t it beautiful? We did not have saukura trees in Drammen when I was a child…
