It's done

And the day came and went. Last Tuesday I had surgery on my knee and everything went ok. Incredibly enough, I'm feeling very well. Except for some dizziness because of the pain killers but besides that my knee seems to be doing pretty well and I have recovered a great deal of movement on it. I had a doctor appointment on Wednesday so I had to go out of my apartment, it wasn't as hard as I expected although I felt a little bit dizzy. So far, so good. Let's see how this keeps evolving.

Execution date

And the time came, I'll have the surgery on my knee next tuesday. Which means I need to prepare everything since after surgery I'll be walking with crutches for some time. It is going to be interesting to get out of my apartment since I live in a third floor without elevator.
Anyways, the best thing is that I'll probably be ready for the ski season so I'm looking forward to that.

Not again

I'm not sure if this comes from heaven to even out my body or what, but I just received the results from the MRI to my right knee and the verdict is very bad: "You have a total ruptur of your front ligament in your knee", which means I'm out of sports for a long while. As promised, after recovery I will not play football outside south america again.

"Whole" night parties

I like to have fun, sometimes it might as simple as having a glass of wine and a nice conversation or sometimes going out for parties. I also enjoy waiting for the sunrise before going back home, it is so nice to walk with the fresh air in the morning.
I must admit that when I say "waiting for the sunrise", I mean a normal sunrise... something that happens somewhere between 05:00-06:30 in the morning. Last saturday I was in a very good party and I decided to go home around 2:30 in the morning and it was already clear. This norwegian nights confuse me, the party started outside around 16:00 with a bbq, and we went inside around 22:00 after the sunset, and by 2:30 it was day again.... who stole my night? I think it's going to take some time for me to get use to the idea of the "midnight sun".

Dancing weekend

Despite the fact that last monday I was injured while playing football (if this is again a torn ligament I swear I won't play football outside south america ever again, the rest of the world does not know how to play football) I went to a cabin trip where the main topic was dancing and dancing.
Everything started yesterday at 11:33 at Majorstuen T-B stasjon where we met with the rest and took the subway to begin our hike to the cabin. It was a very interesting three hour hike to a place called "studenthytta", somewhere in the middle of Nordmarka, outside Oslo.
Once there, we had lunch and then rest for a while. We started sometime around 17:00 dancing salsa in a "rueda", we did this for about 1 and a half hours and it was very fun. After that we stop for a while and had something to eat. After some time we started dancing again. This time we had rock and roll, salsa and bachata. We danced almost all night, I went to bed around 2:00 am since while dancing salsa I hurt my right knee again (yes, it is not smart to dance salsa with a hurt knee but if this is torn ligament I won't be able to do it for a long while so I better enjoy it now).
Today we woke up, had breakfast and then we started the cleaning. Around 12:00 we were ready to go, and started the 45 minutes walk (yes, we took a different route this time) to catch the bus. All in all it was a surreal experience, dancing in the middle of nowhere with nothing but trees around it is really wonderful. I'm looking forward for the next trip!
