Norway's Myths and Realities

This video reminded me of my own visit to Norway while in high school. I recall that my Norwegian friend who I stayed with had a grandmother in need of a hip replacement. A public hospital would do it for free, but the waiting list was nine months (at least, might have been longer). A private hospital his family contacted was willing to do it the next week.
