Weird Words from Bergen

Bekkalokk is a very typical word, meaning the manhole cover for a sewer. In the rest of Norway, it is called «kumlokk». Kjusa deg is an expression from Bergen meaning «lucky you!», that might not be understood in the rest of Norway. Plukkfisk is a traditional everyday dish from the West Coast of Norway, a kind of mashed potatoes with fish. Yummy! Rævadilter is a small kid following after older kids, also used officially as the lowest rank in a buekorps.

I made a batch of postcards out of these.
