25 years ago in Europe: Why Norway is cool


Ah, Norway. Twenty-five years ago I hadn't heard Monty Python's sketch about the Norwegian Blue parrot who was "pining for the fjords", so I came to Norway with no preconceptions at all. But I loved it. And who wouldn't? What nine-year-old Australian kid wouldn't think this animal wasn't cool (my notes say it's an elk, but I'm really not sure ... can someone confirm or deny?), and growing grass on the roof of your house? Coolest thing ever.

  1. And they 'mow' the roof by tethering a goat up there.
