I’m sorry for making you look at this sappiness, but I posted it for two reasons, 1) I had a talk with my Norwegian boss about the use of flags in Norway which I thought was interesting, 2) This was the only thing I managed to cram out today so I’m oddly fond of it.
In Norway they celebrate the day they became their own country with lots of singing and flag-waving.
I had another talk with a Norwegian nurse who said that it is mostly because the Norwegians were happy to finally rule themselves and not so much because they hated the Danes. “You were actually quite nice to us, as far as suppressors goes. You even let the Norwegian king rule Denmark while the Danish king was away”
Aww! If that doesn't warm a Dane's heart, what would?
So here is Denmark, looking at the Norwegian mountains, already missing Norway.
Again, sorry for the sappiness. Apparently I’m in that kind of mood. :blush:
