Hey HumuHumu,

Yes, the Norwegians (sp?) all spoke excellent English. Once again I was reminded how ignorant Americans are by the fact that everywhere I travel, everyone else speaks multiple languages, and I can only stumble my way to another beer (Ringnes!).

In addition to the points Virani made, I understand that Brits like to take vacation in Norway, so a lot of their tourist industry is geared towards them, so many people speak English.

Because they use the same letters as the English language... all the signs were in English, just different phonetics. For example, if you can see in this photo, there's a store in the middle with signs saying "Spill Her! Spill Her!" Perferct English!



So.... a montage of first impressions of Scandanavia....
Snow
Open-faced sandwiches
Blondes
Brunettes! (the big surprise for me)
For kids... Speed Metal!
And milk with EVERY meal

Norway was beautiful, I would encourage anyone who has a chance to visit.

K
