Life at Trøndertun, hugs and bread eating


I have been in Norway for two months, and I can say that my life has changed. I am a new person. It is not easy for me to live far from my family, but it is for sure a great experience. Things are slowly falling into place now. Step by step, I am learning Norwegian and making new friends.

It is hard for me to not hug people as much as I am used to. I also have to be careful not to be too up front and say directly what I mean all the time, like they do in my country. To me the Norwegians can seem a bit cold, but once I get to know them, they turn out to be great people.

The last thing I would like to say is that I am totally in love with beautiful Trondheim. And the school, Trøndertun, is also great. The food is really good, although I am having some difficulties eating so much bread all the time… The teachers are good, and the lessons are very instructive!
