Untold Stories

It’s weird to be skimming through the online newspapers after a week in a refugee camp in the desert. VG, the biggest Norwegian paper gives the readers a shocking story about how kids queuing up for a Justin Bieber concert made congestion on roof of the opera house in Oslo. On top of that half the Norwegian population seems to be on strike these days (that figures, after all we’re the richest country in the world, with nothing more than water and bread crumbs to live of). Farsunds Avis, in the southern part of the country, has a report on the theft of 10 (or maybe even 11) wooden sleepers (you know, the solid beams that lay under railroad-tracks), belonging to the Norwegian state-owned railroad-company. According to the paper each beam was 3.5 meters long. The local police have no suspects at the moment, but the hunt is still on!

  1. This was an eye opening trip for all of us. Although, sitting in my comfortable home, in my comfortable chair in front of my expensive computer makes it very easy to be shocked and dismayed at some of the stories you shared. I suspect these stories will leave a much bigger impression on you and your lives. Thanks for taking us along.

  2. I sometimes wonder how American children (some, not all) would survive in some of the other cultures around the world. They don’t know how lucky they are, with their I-pods and computers, when there are so many children that have inadequate food and shelter. So many of us are surrounded by blessings, yet we still complain about we don’t have. It is rather sad, when you stop to think about it.
