This photo was taken after my first solo flight. My flight instructor Terje Sjolstad told me 
that in Norway the tradition after you complete your first solo is for your instructor,
with the help of everyone else at the FBO, to throw you in a lake. Since no lake 
was immediately avalaible, Terje met me on the tarmac with a bucket  of ice cold water.
