We were all laughing ...... : )
Me, because I was completely wrong. I thought they were tourists from somewhere....
Well, he was from Bergen (Norway`s second biggest city) and she was from Stavanger!
I got their permission to put this photo out on the blog, and finished with one of the very few phrases I can say in Japanese "Domo arigato geseimas".
I still smile a little when I look at this photo, they must have thought I was completely crazy:)

Konnichi wa, Gunn san!
I would have guessed that they were from Japan, too! Only I can speak some Japanese so they would have been surprised at me!
Domo arigato gozaimashita!

Inuits, crossed my mind ;-)

Well, I thought they were Japanese when I first saw your photo, so I'm not surprised! Plus the 'peace' sign is so very Japanese :-D

I don't know what you mean. They certainly look Norwegian to me.

Fun portrait.

How come they don't have any names?

Gunn said...

To Steffe.-
I`ll remember pen and paper next time I hope...
Some people don`t want to have their name published, others want to have their full name published.

I just love when situations like this happen! Very funny post! :-)

By the way, I'm familiar with 'domo arigato', but what does 'geseimas' mean? (A portuguese asking this to a norwegian - don't you think it's a bit crazy? LOL!)

To JM,
I might be wrong, but I was told that saying "geseimas" at the end, is like the difference between saying "thank you", and "Thank you very much."
