I just want to explain my situation here in Norway. I'm an American, who's been living here since 1999, and I have been "housed" since that time. I came to Norway as a homeless person from America, but I have not been in touch with very many homeless Norwegians. There's been a bit of a language barrier, even though I can speak some Norwegian, and many Norwegians can speak English. Much of the homelessness takes place in Norway's capitol, Oslo, although where I live there have been street people also.
I'll try to take word of this forum to others here in Norway.
We also have homeless people selling street newspapers.
contributions and suggestions welcome, btw.
