Общение с гостями
Arrival and departure times depend on other guests, and is FLEXIBLE. I will be happy to advise you about Oslo and things Norwegian, recommend places to go and listen to your reflections.

I will want the guest to be happy in my place. To explore the city, to sleep well. I will want him/her to get what she/he came for, as well as the unexpected. I will interact with guests and I will also leave them alone, according to what is possible and what is needed. Except that, once a year, I will be away, and take care of you online - with another person in not far away from you.
Ordinary human friendliness and respect of the place, including the neighbors. Let me KNOW what you need! I may not be able to provide it. I may, however, try. See below!
Smoking is not allowed. No alcohol is the best. Respect the place, my work and my neighbors. Use kitchen within limits. (No big cooking.)
I am a writer, translator & photographer. When in Oslo, I stay in this quiet and central artist´s place. I will be available to you when you let me know that you want me to. I will not disturb an independent traveller.
I am fond of music: jazz, classical, folk, Indian and European. Am fond of cinema too, and, of course, of books. I am certainly fond of, and curious about, people.
I know my part of the city well, fjord, forest and streets. When not in Oslo, I am most of the time travelling in eastern parts of India or northern Bangladesh, dedicated to amazing and vanishing folk traditions, be it in song or colours. I am committed to grassroot-organizations, artists and children there.
