"It´s pretty weird, now I´m in Norway"

A little piece of Norway through the american exchange student Ben and his adventures at the University of Oslo, is presented to you trough this reportage (in english). I really like this reportage. (PS: I used to work for Oslo Student TV -the creators, myself befor I went to Germany) 




This is a little taste of what it’s like to be a part of the Norwegian society -foreign or not. I especially like how Ben brakes down all the stereotypes about Norway/Norwegians, at the same time as I realize that his view made me understand that people have them and that its also hard to explain -as Ben says, why. People tend to just have this unrealistic fairy tale picture about us, the Norwegians, and to be honest, I should not blame them... However, it is good to acknowledge that some has discovered that not all fairy tales represent the whole truth.
