To Varangerbotn and Karajok (Sami National Museum and Parliment)

first -- sami museum Varangerbotn?? (see album on phone titled: Varangerbotn)

Tana bru (grocery and burger restaurant) culture shock: realizing most here are eating burger with knife and fork -- are american's rude or are norwegians just extra?

Tana-- agricultural school // how does the norwegian school system work??

    From wikipedia: "Norway has multiple different grading systems, both unique ones and ones that have been based on foreign grading systems. The formerly most common system of grades used at university level was based on a scale running from 1.0 (best) through 6.0 (worst) with 4.0 or below being considered passing grades.
The way the new Bologna system was introduced implies that students who had started their studies while the old system still was in effect will graduate with transcripts containing grades from both systems (i.e. both numbers and letters).
Lower levels of education use a scale running from 1 through 6, with 6 being the highest and 2 the lowest passing grade. For non-final tests and mid-term evaluations the grades are often postfixed with + or - (except 6+ and 1-) and it is also common to use grades such as 5/6 or 4/3 indicating borderline grades. However, the grades students get on their final paper are either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6. A 6 is the equivalent to an A+, a 5 to an A or A-, 4 in the B range, 3 in the C range and so on.

Karajok-- sami parliment // arcitechture and library // Sami peoples and learning norwegian -- why could all the foreigners understand the young man so well and the norwegians didn't think the same

       -- RoRi --  motell and restaurant complete with what I would guess to be a non-functioning lavvo in the front // Sami identity and usage for capital -- good or bad?
