Three things we found in Norway that were completely unexpected:
1. Food isn’t just pricey, it’s outrageously expensive. A Big Mac at McDonalds: $14. Two smoothies and a sandwich: $35 (Jamie thought the price was well worth it because Max, the smoothie boy, was a cute and French). Two gourmet hamburgers: $42 each. They tasted great, but I damn near choked when the bill arrived.
2. Everyone smokes. Everyone. Non-stop. Kind of ruins the pleasure of an outdoor cafe.
3. Muslim beggers on every corner, but not a Nordic-looking begger to be found. A few Nordic drunks passed out on a few corners, but no beggars.
