The Viking staff loves hearing from readers! Thanks to J.J. Henry of Huntingdon, P.A. for writing us after reading "Discovering Norway" in our April issue. Huntingdon specializes in Norwegian philately, and has assembled a list of post offices with Norway or Norge in the name.

"Note that many of these post offices no longer exist," writes Huntingdon. "Those with zip codes probably are still in service. However, the all of the communities would still exist," he adds.
