Letters from the year we lived in Akkarvik - school year 2006/2007

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.
