Politaholic has returned from his cycling holiday in Norway. Three bad things about Norway: (i) it is uphill in every direction, (ii) the price of beer is extortionate, (iii) the food is nothing to shout about (although I liked the Norwegian fish soup). Three good things: (i) the people are - with the exception of the few arseholes one finds everywhere - very friendly and helpful (even to lost cyclists), (ii) the country is very beautiful; (iii) they don't have siesta's (it is possible to find somewhere to eat and drink in the afternoon). The picture shows a steep hill; steeper than it looks. Honest.
