a Norwegian student in my class had same high school teacher I did

In 1985 I was an exchange student in Norway. In 1997 I started teaching college in Oregon. One year I was taking attendance on the first day of a new class, and there was a Norwegian name. At the end of class, I said something to the student in Norwegian. We started talking. He had come to America to be with his girlfriend. We kept talking, and he was from the same city I stayed in, and went to the same school. We had the same Norwegian literature teacher, Eivind Skaar, who had already been quite old when I had been a student.
