Any of you visiting Bergen by any chance?

Postby WannabeAngua » Tue Jun 09, 2009 9:19 pm

Just been visiting Bergen, on the west coast of Norway. On the bus into town I sat for a few minutes beside a young brunette who was reading a Pratchett book. Asked her what she was reading, and had to repeat the question as she spoke englisk (it was Maskerade by the way). Any of this sound familiar to any of you?? (Well you never know - could be one of those one in a million things right) :D

I have seen quite a few instances of people reading Pterrys books(tube, bus ,train) and you would not think to look at them that is what they would read. :)

Yes I noticed :) But if she's from Bergen she wouldn't need to be asked the question in english....I know sometimes I may mumble a bit, but I'm not that difficult to understand :D

I've been to Bergen several times (love it there!) but not lately - so it wasn't me either

:lol:
Must have been one of those extremely modern female dwarfs then, not a beard in sight - plus, she was easily 5ft6....
She was very sweet, and she didn't mind my son attempting to flirt with her by throwing his pacifier at her over and over and over again :)

Oh well, perhaps she'll stumble over this forum someday soon.
