A young Spanish woman named Paola He shared on his TikTok account what the “culture clashes” are like between his country and Norway and surprised more than one by telling what local parents usually do when, for example, they want to drink coffee in a cafe but they care of their children newborn babies.
The tiktoker reported it Many Norwegian parents leave their children parked on the pavement when they enter a café or supermarket without worrying too much about what might happen to him.
“When they go somewhere they leave the child outside. Minus 20 degrees, it’s raining, it’s snowing, they don’t care. This is real. They leave the kids parked there. Everyone I know has done it,” Paula revealed.
Paula has been living in the Nordic country for two months for her studies and is gradually adapting to the idiosyncrasies of its inhabitants.
But the problem Norwegians have with children wasn’t the only thing that surprised the young woman.
By the way, Paula also highlighted the perfect English of most of the inhabitants, even the 6-year-old children, who according to her speak the language better than half of Spanish.
On a physical level, the tiktoker said that Norwegians “don’t really like touching each other”, but that “on a personal level they are very kind”. And in this sense he recognized the good vibes of bus drivers.
An aspect that also surprised him – although he partly imagined it – is that the streets of the city are “immaculate”. “There’s nothing on the floor, it’s very clean.”
Finally, the tiktoker acknowledged that there are no cigarette butts on the floor because Norwegians are used to consuming chewing tobacco and that with alcohol “everything goes bad”.
The hours of the cellars are “very strange” and the price of each bottle is very high. Mind you: beers are easy to find. They are sold by supermarkets and the cheapest one costs around 4 and a half euros.
