In the USA, with millions of people living across a vast land, and with diverse cultures and national opportunities – it’s perhaps easy to understand why they don’t know their geography very well. I mean, why travel? It’s “all here”…
Ever since I came to this country over 20 years ago, I do find it amusing that (about) 70% of the people I’ve met do not know much about Norway. Sweden gets all the love, and is recognized from hearing about Saab, Volvo, Abba (the band), media clips – and the amazing tales of the beautiful, tall, blond girls. When asked about Norway, it becomes a “Jaaa, sure, you betcha” comment, with the Swedish angle at every turn.
So, when you ask – “What is Norway?”, the answers are often diverse, but mostly not right, They say: “it’s the capitol of Sweden, no?”
