Norwegian Personal Space

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Norway"

Norwegians need space

A lot of Space

This is when you know that a Norwegian bus stop is full

And that you need to stand


And when you stand

Make sure to leave space between the other people standing

If you look different

Or wear religious symbols

How easy would it be for you to believe

That people go away from you

Because of the color of your skin

Or your religion

It has nothing to do with that

Norwegian simply need space

We all see the world through cultural glasses

This picture illustrate the whole thing pretty well
