Why Norway?

Pauline asked why I had chosen Norway and the answer is very easy - it is where I am from! I have spent a total of 9 1/2 years abroad (US, Central America, Europe), the last 8 1/2 continously. So I thought it would be a good idea to try and live in Norway for a little while to see what it was like after this long. I was pretty sure that I wanted to make my life in the US and after one month here in Norway I am even more sure! I guess I have just changed too much... I also think it is easy to underestimate the change that "moving back" can entail - failing to realize that such a move can be just as difficult as moving to a foreign country, when you have roots somewhere else.

I'm finding this very interesting! I'm looking forward to hearing more about your job and about Norway. One of my books I just read (a mystery) was set there.
