Only one month previous to this February visit, Rotraud had undergone surgery for removal of two cancerous tumors. She was determined to keep a positive attitude and not to dwell on the illness. She had had a chemo treatment just the week before. We tried to keep the socializing to a minimum, but apparently, that is not the Norwegian way.
