Don't forget the blue of the parrots that live up that way...

Clive, I like Norway very much. I gave a keynote at Trondheim last year. By the way, also next FPL is in Norway. http://www.fpl2012.org/ (FPL is worldwide the largest conference on Reconfigurable Computing and Applications.) It is scheduled for Oslo, organized by Jim Torreson and Dirk Koch (both University of Oslo: leaders of an excellent RC team) and Satnam Singh (who obviously also started to teach Google, how to reduce the electricity bill by FPGA use).

Little known facts: It is well known that Nidarosdomen is Norway's largest church with a capacity of around 1700. But what is Norway's smallest church? Kondomen. There's only room for one, and he has to stand.

"...my 17-year-old son, Joseph, and I are in Trondheim, Norway..." One less item on your bucket list...??

My experience of a train ride across the Norwegian interior in winter (December in my case) was that you didn't need colour film in your camera (anyone remember Kodakchrome?). The lakes were black, the snow was white and the sky was grey.
