Can I ask you a question about Norwegian culture? Why do people not talk to each other on the bus? Everyone chooses to sit alone, and if they do sit next to each other, they still don’t talk. Someone from the office told me that many many many years ago Norway had a disease that halved the population. Do you think that people still have that in mind, and that’s why they choose to sit apart and not talk?
– Weldegergis Tesfay
