Making the news

Why do I always end up with the Chinese?


The University of Oslo gave everyone who arrived in like the last quarter a big welcome and survival guides. I guess if you wouldn't get into a group where half of the people are ex-colleagues anyway, it indeed could be a bit frustrating up here.

According to folk lore, Norwegians are shy (inside Norway, not when traveling), and leave work early (around 16:00). So you might indeed have some trouble establishing some kind of social network. Oh, and going out for drinks or dinner usually requires taking out a mortgage. So UiO thought they'd show us the ropes around everything Norwegian, and throw in a breakfast for good measure—and a UiO coffee mug!

 Did you notice that the image subtitle says "From right", and starts with your name, although you are clearly sitting to the left (last but one)?

Jo, aber ich bin schon froh, dass sie noch meinen Nachnamen korrigieren konnten, bevor es in Druck ging. Das andere ist dann nur ein Messfehler :-)
