If it was still there, Norwegians wouldn't need to drive to Sweden to do their shopping:) The prices there are much cheaper, aren't they?

A lot of people living close to the border goes on what's referred to as "harrytur" or "harryhandel", a somewhat derogatory term for going shopping for cheap stuff in Sweden. To a Norwegian this is about as important as pilgrimaging is to a religious person.

Whoa! Where in the hay did this come from? Why are we using the infinitive here? I just had to use a participle (or a gerund?...like anybody ACTUALLY knows the difference...:)...) in my English translation and my mind is blown!! :0
