for quite a while. I will try my best to keep you in the loop for the future. Yes, I’m back in China, after four years away. And this time I’m putting some real effort into learning the language once and for all. I signed up for a nine month course at EF Beijing. It’s very intensive, and I’m learning a lot. In a few months I should be speaking and reading Mandarin like a pro. Well, maybe not like a local, but at least I will be able to communicate and continue learning without going to school every day.

I’ve also been to the great wall, north of Beijing (the photo). However, Christmas is fast approaching, and with that a three week vacation from school.

As most of you know, I love to travel and make new friends, and let’s face it, folks; Norway is a tiny country, and not many people outside Norway—except maybe Swedes and Danes—can read Norwegian. And I, for one, don’t blame them! Tiny country, folks!

So, there you go; I tweet in English. And what’s new: From this day forth my blog will also be understandable to 99 % of my friends. Some parts may still suffer from the ancient Norse tongue, yet given time I will try to sort that out. Les mer »
