I was in Oslo last week. Oslo is the capital of Norway and has been hosting the Nordic World Ski Championship the last week and a half. It was pretty cold and deserted when I got there, but on the way back the main street, Karl Johans gate, was sunlit and crowded with people watching one of the races on a big screen in front of the Storting (the Norwegian Parliament).
Not far from the Storting several of Edvard Munch’s famous paintings have been recreated in snow and ice by different artists. Really cool (no pun intended)!
The Royal Palace is right at the end of the street.
You’ve got to love creativity and hot cocoa on a cold winter day...
