You know you are in Norway when:
The alphabet sprouts new A and O diatrictical marks
When the cost of a cup of coffee is $7
When NOW means Norwegians on Wheels
When you find yourself watching young troops marching up then lining a parade route as an honor guard while military marching bands blast our ears.
Where most of the names on buildings could just as easily be found in Northfield MN
Where the coffee and ice cream places out number everything else
If you are on my postcard list, not happening here. As much as I might love you – between the card and postage it’s over $4. Even Italy is cheaper than that. Got back to the ship with the same amount as I left with.
