Last night in Bergen and I am chilling with a guy from Syria and another from Algeria. They communicate in their similar language, and the Syrian knows English and the Algerian knows French. The three of us talking is a jumble of languages. We are speaking different languages to one another, I am fortunate to know both French and English because otherwise we really couldnt have communicated nor could I have translate for the Indian girl who showed up later.
I am currently on the ferry headed from Bergen to Sogndal where I will meet up with a Slovakian friend, Jan, whom I met in New Zealand two years ago. The ferry ride so far is stunning and fortunately enough, there is free Internet! I was just on skype with my dad and was able to show him the view that I was seeing as we sailed through the jumble of fjords and islands... so cool!
