End of quote...


The settlers in North America

had to make do with what they had.

They didn't have Xbox or LCD

flat-screens. That wasn't important.

Hello, everybody.

This is Mikkel speaking.

As you know,

I'm on my way over to the West.

And I would like to thank everyone

for wonderful years at this school.

I want to thank Camilla for a great

time by the apple tree last summer.

I want to thank Anna

for letting me...

For letting me touch her fun bags.

I'll miss everyone.

I'll miss the guys, the teachers.

Especially Staalberg and miss Tanner.

Miss Tanner, I'll miss you

you wicked girl.


Get out!

Thanks a lot, everyone!


Thank you so much.

We're also looking forward to it.

Goodbye for now.

We're being picked up

by the owner of the house.

He sounded very nice.

We're getting off

right before Voss...

We're changing our eating habits now.

No more McDonald's and junk food.

We're eating cured ham

and Norwegian home fare.

We can pick berries and mushrooms.

And go skiing in the winter.

It's probably a small place,

where everyone knows everyone.

It's a good idea to behave

nice and friendly when we get there.

Don't you think so, Miksey?

Be a little sociable.

Are you listening when I talk to you?


Do you want a cup of coffee?

Do you need any help?


It takes a bit of experience.

But with a bit of practice,

you get the hang of it.

So if you need any more help,

just let me know.




milk and sugar in my coffee!

-ls that your mom?

-I don't know that lady.

Miksey, two sweeteners for your mom!

Yo, que pasa.

-ls it far?

-To what?

To where we're supposed to live.

No. If you look ahead,

you can see the ski centre.

That's our destination, in a way.

Can you see the red light

at the top of the house down there?

Pizza Palace!

It's the best place

in the whole town.

But stay away from pizza number 7...


-Number 7?

Every time I eat that one,

I get very loose in my...


Home, sweet home.

There's the snow groomer.

It's bad as hell.

-Have you ever driven a groomer?


-There's a first time for everything.

-Where's our apartment?


Up the stairs.

I live in here.

You live there.

All your stuff came yesterday.

Just knock on the wall

if you need anything. That wall.


That's good to know.

If you need a ride tomorrow, Mikkel, -

-then I'm leaving at eight o'clock.


Eight o'clock son!

It's pretty cool, or what?

A bit retro, but cool.

Hope you like the apartment!

Good night!

Everybody, this is Mikkel Nordskog.

From today on

he will be in your class.

Maybe you can tell us

a little bit about yourself?

My name is Mikkel.

I'm from Oslo.

I've been in high school

about a year and half.




So I've got a job here,

and my mom moved here.

Well, my mom got a job,

so I moved here.

I haven't been many places here.

But it sure was a long bus ride...

Yes, sir.

Sit here.

I think we all should say welcome

to Mikkel. One, two, three...

Welcome, Mikkel...

Very good.

Let's open the books at page 52.

It's the poem "The old mountains"

by Ivar Aasen.

And Samantha

will start reading today.

The old mountains in the distance

Are always the same

Covered in an armament...

Hey, Oslo boy!

Are you going to the party tonight?


-It's a party in the slopes tonight.

-Do you snowboard or ski?


-Cool. See you later.

Are you ready?

Where are you going?

-If you want, you can go ahead.

-You sure?

I've got something planned

with some people from the school.

-I don't mind skiing with you.
