Before we lose Norway from our memory bank--don’t laugh, it’s getting easier and easier for that sort of thing to happen--here’s a tutorial of miscellaneous notations for Americans driving around parts of Europe.


1. The first bit of notation is specific to Norway and Sweden (and maybe Finland and Denmark, too, but we haven’t been there yet):

Numbers like these appear on parking signs and shop fronts; occasionally they’re even painted on buildings. They refer to things like a store’s opening hours or, as here, the times of day when you need to feed the parking meter. The first set of numbers refers to Monday through Friday hours; the second, in parentheses, is for Saturday; occasionally you’ll also see a second set of parentheticals for Sunday. (You won’t often see that second set in Norway because just about everything in the country is closed on Sunday.)

2. If you do find a grocery open on Sunday in Norway and make your way to the beer cooler, you may see this:

If you’re not in a high-density-tourist area, the helpful explanatory sign will be missing, leaving only the piece of canvas covering the beer cooler, as if to avoid taunting you with the sight of what you’re not allowed to buy on Sunday.
