ABC - U
This is for U - Comment in your own Language - dette er for deg, kommenter på ditt eget morsmål.
The Letter U is often used as a prefix both in English and Norwegian.
Mostly in English combined as "Un" like in "Undone" - "ugjort" or "Unfinnished" - "uferdig" or "Undetermined" - "ubesluttet". As you, my dear readers have allready discovered: In English these words starts with "Un" and in Norwegian with a simple "U".
But not all - alle
As Usual I start with:
The Letter “U”
“U,” the fifth and last (in English) of the true vowels, symbolizes collecting.
The origin od the letter U? Check here.
I'll bring you some examples, before I will be more or less unavailable - utilgjengelige. Or may be unbeatable - uslåelig. haha
It's Vacation time. U know;-))
Let's start in Oslo - This is the old University - universitet - in downtown Oslo. Inside there is fantastic frescos painted by Edvard Munch. I had my Psycho lessons here. In the Aula. Where I also joined several classical music concerts. Before the new Concert Hall in Oslo were finnished.
Turning around from the University, we are still in Oslo. And here you see "Urban" - "urbant" life - liv in the Norwegian Capital.
Before I bring you far away from Norway, I'll show you how some parts of our Summer House (sommerhus) looked like "Unfinnished" - "uferdig". You can't image how steep it us unless been there.
It's about time to bring you, my dear readers, on a journey. The letter " U" ain't easy, "unless - unntatt" you are from USA - USA. Photo taken on July 4, in SW Michigan, Eaux Claire - I had to explain to the locals the name of the Township orginates from French and means Clearwater. I will not comment on their reactions.
It's a long way from USA to South America. Here you see the national Flower of Uruguay - Uruguay. Same colours as is in the country's National Flag.
Norwegians love to walk in the Nature and the Mountains. Maybe it's unexpected that I bring you here?
This tiny village, Uspallata (Mendoza District in Argentina), is where you have to apply for a permission to climb the highest point in the Americas, and the highest Mountain outside Asia.
So now you know where to adress, when thinking about climbing to 6.954 meters, when snow over 7.000 meters.
Continue reading and I'll bring you closer.
Here you see Aconcagua, when we first time did see this Majestic Mountain.
What does this photo have to do with the letter "U"? It's simply unhabitated - ubebodd.
We were there in April. That's not the best time of year. It was blowing and blowing and snowing higher up. So we gave up, even to base camp. Best time of year is early January.
Sometimes we have to admit: It's better to go "Under - under" than over a Mountain. This photo, scanned from a slide, is the Argentian side of the main road between Argentina and Santiago de Chile. For your information: The old railroad and road have both been destroyde by stone sledges. Caused by Snow and Eartquakes.
