A Norwegian Conversation

In most countries around the world

When  a conversations goes down

And it becomes a little awkward 

You find something to comment about 

And the conversation starts again

It flows easily

Awkwardness goes away quickly

In Norway

It works a little differently

Unframed discussions are more challenging

With an acquaintance

You will go to a quiz rather than for a coffee

You will play a game rather than discussing the news

You will go walking in the mountain rather than reflecting together on the world

In Norway

If you want to discuss politics, sign up in a political organisation

If you want to discuss art, sing up in an art club

If you want to discuss feelings, get an appointment with a psychologist

Welcome to Norway

Where communication works differently

You may need a guidebook
