    Hey, new to this forum.
    Been 2 times too vegas the past 10 months, and love it :)
    Drank too much, smoked too much and gamble way too much.
    Since we do not have casinos in norway, its heaven for me going there and let loose :)

    Greetings!

    How accurate is the town Lilihammer portrayed in the Netflix show of the same name? I am a Steven van Zandt fan from his Soprano's gig, so I watched the whole series.

    Im not sure, never been too Lillehammer, and have only seen cuple of episodes of the show. But i think the show is actual filmd in lillehammer. So for the town its probaly portrayd pretty accurat.

    But for how Norwegians are portrayd, not too sure ;)

    I'd say that some of the personalities are pretty accurate depictions of Norwegians, but without the whole getting caught up in all those crazy situations. I'm not sure that happens that much here :haha:

    PS, I also paid 25 bucks for my beer in Norway. One of the most expensive places in the world. Also, Norway owns 1.1% of the world's stock investments and is NOT a member of the EU because Norway is rich rich rich.

    25 bucks for a beer, im not surprised.
    Everything that is good or fun, is extremly expencive.

    Cars is a good example.
    A Ford mustang cost Ca 150 000 $ here, and just over the border in sweden, its Ca 45 000$.
