End of an Era

Farewell, Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten’s English page. Farewell, tales of drunk elk attacking washing or walking through windows, the inadequacies of the Norwegian State Railways, the articles about oil that I always skip, annual First Snow Sparks Chaos (not just the UK),the landslides, the financial troubles at Hurtigruten, students getting drunk – again, state church angst, Nobel prizes, international peace efforts, occasional random violent crime, jumper-wearing royals. In some ways, it’s like a much bigger Craggy Island Times.

Most of all, though, I shall remember it for this headline: Animal Bordellos Draw Norwegians.
