Ticket to ride...

I just realized that its been a while since I've posted anything... not because of thanksgiving (a strictly New World holiday, which I would be celebrating in October anyway) but because I've finally received my settlement papers for England and have to put everything in order for my departure from Norway.

I would have liked to have spent another Christmas in Norway... I'll miss the pinnekjott and the Juløl, the 'old world' feel of christmas here, the sight of snow on Mt. Ulriken on Christmas morn... but reality is an expired work visa in the most expensive country in the world and a need for a change of scenery. With any luck, the snow hitting Scotland will dip southwards a bit, and I can look forward to a white Christmas.
