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.

Almost a bit embarrassing

Published: Saturday 2007-06-02.

It is almost a bit embarrassing to exit the giant grocery shop 500 metres from the customs border in Eda with food, mostly meats, for almost one thousand Swedish kronor. But that’s how you do it in Norway, here you go on a “Harry” (dork) journey to Sweden to shop for “cheap” meat, and when in Rome, do as the Romans…

In other observations, the new, big, Norwegian-owned shopping centre outside of Charlottenberg wasn’t as bad as I thought. Perhaps it is because it is the first day in quite a while where the sun is shining, and the temperature is somewhat okay, that there weren’t as many people as I would have thought.
