City Daily Photo bloggers are having a mid-month theme day in honor of Norway's Constitution Day.
There is not a huge Norwegian presence* here in Jerusalem and I was fretting, where would I ever find something Norwegian to photograph in time for May 17?
Then a miracle happened yesterday.
Getting off the tram on Jaffa Street, I suddenly saw a little flag of Norway in an Israeli souvenir shop window!
Here it is, right next to the menorah.
I toured beautiful Norway way back in the 1970s and loved it.
The most exciting thing for me was standing on a living glacier and rowing a little wooden boat on a real fiord.
For a funny list of "typical" Norwegian characteristics visit the wonderful blog post written by friend "Spiderdama" in Grimstad, Norway.

*Some 18,000 tourists from Norway visited Israel last year, and 550 Norwegians are registered at their embassy as temporary or permanent residents of Israel.
