After a brief introduction yesterday, I had a more in-depth look around Oslo today. The city did nothing to lessen its appeal & I like it more now than I did 24 hours ago. There is lots to do and see here. I did as much as I could in one day, which turned out to be quite a lot.
I started the day by paying a visit to the 1697 Oslo Cathedral.
I sat in the gallery and observed a very quiet session of Stortinget, the Norwegian parliament.
I ogled at the lavishly decorated interior of the Oslo Radhus (Town Hall).
I sat by the Oslo waterfront playing with late afternoon shadows.
I saw The Scream in The National Gallery.
And I took in the festive sights on the pedestrianised streets of central Oslo.
I wish I had more time (& money) to hang around here which, I guess, is the best motivation to come back. But I don’t. Tomorrow I fly to Iceland. Needless to say that should be a highlight. Beyond that I don’t know what to say. Iceland. Tomorrow.
