Silly Norwegians

This week marked a milestone for me here in Sydney.  On Thursday, I was mistaken for an Aussie!  It's been less than three weeks and already people are thinking I'm a local?  What kind of stupid people could think this?

Norwegians.  That's who.

I was walking down the street when two nice Norwegian girls stopped me to ask me for directions to the Sydney Opera House.  Hahahahaha!  Suckers!  With my directions, they could have ended up in Perth for all I know.  Or Turkmenistan.

But you know what?  I knew exactly where to go.  From the bus stop to the right bus route and then what to do when they got off the bus.  Hmmm.  Maybe I'm a local now?

Not yet.  Not until I get a job.

And try Vegemite.  Yuck.

  1. I was asked for directions in Paris twice while there for only like 18 hours... once by two French guys looking for a Métro station. I told them I thought I had seen one on the corner of the Place de la Concorde. It was pretty awesome.
