About the Homestay
I'm living in a large apartment with lots of musical instruments and thousands of books in central Oslo. Since my son is studying in another town, I'm making his room available for homestay.
I'm an anthropologist and engineer with a special interest in East Asia - so I'm particularly happy to host students and travelers from that region of the world. I speak some Japanese, and is eager to improve my language skills.
I love to host people who play a musical instruments and guests are free to use the grand piano and other instruments in the house.
