Today I had some lessons in everyday living. This included:
Shopping. The largest supermarkets are like a small Foodlion (US), large Coop (UK): there is nothing on the scale of Walmart or ASDA. Most items are recognizable, but differentiating types of flour, etc required some explanation.
Driving. As in the US and most of Europe, we drive on the right. However having had nearly five years of driving an automatic car, the transition back to ‘stick shift’ took a little time (and I need to apologize to the gear box – eek!).
Sorry, no pictures today – Rema1000 is not very photogenic, and I’m hoping not to receive any pictures from the Norwegian Police or their speed camera network. The national speed limit of 80 seems quite fast, except it’s km/h, so that’s actual 50mph.
However, I have added a couple of pictures to The Valley.
