Norway doesn’t do drinking fountains or ‘bubblers’ (as we call them in Australia).  It is for practical reasons, really.  It just gets too cold and the pipes would freeze, split or burst.  So it is difficult to get a free sip of water when out and about.

It was a surprise to see this public water pump in the market square in Trondheim.  Moose just went up, pushed the button and started drinking, in public!  This sort of behavior is normal in Australia, but I’ve never seen anyone do it in Norway.  I must be rubbing off on Moose.  But I did have to look over my should to see if anyone else thought it odd too.  Alas, there was no one about that I could confer with.
