We are a group of three, two Americans of Italian heritage (father and son) and one Italian friend. I, David, am the son. I lived for many years in Brooklyn, NYC, and now live in Portland, Maine. I am 33 and am a poet, former teacher, and chef, currently doing a two month apprenticeship at Faviken Magasinet in Jamtland. My dad is visiting from New York and my friend Alberto (who is 27) is visiting from Venice. We do not speak Norwegian or Swedish and are visiting Norway for the first time. We are very excited to see Trondheim!
