no such thing as a cheap date

Here are current beer prices in Trondheim. Today’s conversion rate is 1 USD = 5.98 kroners.

You can get a pint of Dahls (a crappy, flavorless pils) for 55 kroner at Mormors. That would be $9.20. Ouch!

Head to TGIFriday to get that same beer for $14 – to go with your $20 cheese sticks. Double (or triple) ouch!

I’m thankful that I’ve moved past that stage in my life where I consume large quantities of alcohol. I’m thankful that I’ve moved past that stage in my life where I think beers like Dahls taste good.

And I’m thankful that I will be back in the US next week. I promise not to complain about $5 pints of microbrews!
