Halden: Not just a prison

Re: Postcard: Halden
Your postcard from Halden prison gives the impression that 'Halden' is the name of a prison only. It also happens to be a town. I was therefore somewhat confused as I read that "Halden is spread over 75 acres (30 hectares) of gently sloping forest in southeastern Norway", and had been 10 years in the making. Whether your lack of research on this point represents an embarassment or a comic omittance, I'll leave for each reader to decide. At any rate: Don't be too scared next time you meet someone presenting themselves as being "from Halden"!
