Something I don't see every day

Coming in to the office in the middle of the morning, I saw a radiantly happy newly wed couple emerge from the lift.

Since I moved into the building in January, my fellow residents have expanded to include the permanent representation of Sweden to the EU, the mission of Norway to the EU, and the embassy of Norway to Belgium. The last of these explains the wedding party, I suppose; presumably Norwegian citizens living abroad can get married at their local embassy.

My working day is filled with bureaucrats, diplomats, and countries in crisis. It's nice, if sadly unusual, to see people being radiantly happy in my workplace.

To any Norwegian readers:

It's a very interesting historical example of the peaceful break-up of formerly united states.

(And a question for my Swedish readers - were you sorry to see them go???)
