Davin's brother Sergio and his family are  traveling around Europe before he begins a year teaching in Spain.  They arrived last night.  The cousins were super happy to see each other and the adults had a very nice time sitting and talking.  It's wonderful to have them here.

Today we all went into the city to explore.  There was a games festival going on and live music.  I was really surprised and excited to meet some Spanish-speaking vendors selling jewelry and souvenirs in the square, but they told me there are tons of Spanish-speakers in Bergen.  More than 12% of the population of Bergen are immigrants, and they come from all over.   Currently, the greatest number of immigrants to the city are from Poland, followed by Iraq, Vietnam, and Chile.
