In July 2006 I was in Norway for the first time. It's so far north that it hasn't been attractive enough to go there yet. An invitation from the departmental research there persuaded me to pack up my people from Trenthorst and go there once. We were there for a week, it was the best weather and we had a lot of fun. It was like in the appointment: We come to drink beer in the fjords to talk about organic farming. The long nights and the nice people left a formative impression.
