Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Yearly cleaning

Published: Friday 2004-05-07.

No, it is not my flat I am talking about, but rather the streets of Oslo. This morning, road-cleaning vehicles rented from Denmark is passing by the street outside, cleaning up all the dirt that has accumulated during the winter.

Even though Norway is supposed to be one of the richest countries in the world, they obviously cannot afford keeping the city clean all year, the streets outside the city centre are only cleaned once a year. That is something you notice when you compare it to other cities of comparable size in Scandinavia; the fact that Oslo is so incredibly dirty.

Not one of Oslo’s best properties.

Med tio dagar kvar till nationaldagen förstår man ju att de väljer den här tiden på året för den årliga rengörelsen. Är det mest grus, människoskräp eller allmänt smuts som täcker gatorna? Själv håller jag på att få hjälp att renovera en lägenhet, och *den* var smutsig efter förra hyresgästen. Där talar vi inte om årlig städning, utan decennial (eller vad det heter?) städning sedan tidigare. Vissa detaljer hade nog inte torkats av på 30 år.
