When people move to Norway they always comment on one thing in particular; the lunch. In many countries this is a hot meal, something great to look forward too, together with your class mates/coworkers. In Norway we have something we call “matpakke”. This is usually a couple of slices of bread with some sweaty, warm, runny, crusty stuff you made either the night before or while eating breakfast. They are either packed in a box or wrapped in a special paper for this kind of use. There is nothing else, just these slices, no pack of crisps, fruit, drink, nothing.
People working in big companies and/or in the city may have a better option, like eating out or in a canteen, but the common worker/student has a matpakke. Terrible, isn’t it?
