I stayed in Ski for 2,5 months. It is a small town in Norway with ca 29.000 inhabitants. It belongs to Akerhus county - region Follo.
There is not much going on here, but there is a big mall, which is the center of Ski - it was just opposite the block of flats were I was staying, so I went there often and didn´t feel that I was in a small town.
