Letters from the year we lived in Akkarvik - school year
Big changes can lead to problems, challenges, funny episodes
etc. Some of them ar described in my not so regulary letters from our
year in the country.
The letters are written by a citizen dweller near Oslo to
other city dwellers in the southern part of Norway, but readable for
everybody else as well.

The last pupils left in 1985, some of my cousins. Now there are no
pupils left in the district.
