Bergen, Norway

We took a plane to Bergen! It was way cool and is a huge city especially compared to Tromso which has the population of Laguna Niguel and is the size of Manhattan. It was rainy most of the time. We went to a member's house and he spoke the most crazy Norwegian I have ever heard. It wasn't even that bad, I just had no idea what they were saying. I also asked these teenage girls what fun things there were to do in Bergen in English (because Norwegians love English) and they responded with some answer, I don't know what. The best part was they continued their conversation in Norwegian and were talking about English boys and I totally knew what they were saying. Kind of felt like Jason Bourne, just saying.

We are in an apartment which are among some of the most expensive apartments in the world and top three among missionaries along with Tokyo and London. It's pretty nice, it has a kitchen, living room and a bedroom and bathroom. It is really dark because there are no lights anywhere - I guess it's a Norwegian thing. We get on the computer at the library, but some of the areas in Norway have them in the house. It just depends on where you are.

Life is good here. Went to Bergen for Wednesday and Thursday. Crazy news - we got our first investigator in four weeks. That's what it's like being in Tromso and in Norway in general. 

It's been raining here for the past few days which makes contacting a little hard. Maybe contacting in South America is not hard, but here it's mostly older women laughing in our face and atheists proclaiming it. But, got to put in the work and try.
