Sixteen members of the Friendship Force of the San Francsico Bay Area basked in the warmth
of the famous "Vær så god" hospitality of Norway during an exchange to Bergen from
June 3 to 25, 1999. The warmth to their spirits helped to compensate for the chill to their bones,
accustomed to sunny California weather.

traditional regional costumes, at the farewell party.
