Coming from a place like NYC, one thing I really liked about Oslo was how it was much easier to see so much in such a short amount of time. I was only there for a week and I really wanted to take advantage of my time there.
Close to my friend Karen’s house is a store called Marita butikken, which is a thrift shop whose proceeds are used to help those with drug addictions and also in the prevention teenage drug use. If I had room in my luggage, I would have DEFINITELY gotten some Norwegian antiques. When I think about antiques in the U.S. compared to antiques in Europe, it kind of makes me smile. I mean, we are talking about differences in centuries!!
After the shop, we walked through the downtown area towards the waterfront. Though it was sunny out, it was windy...
The Nobel Peace Center exhibits the Nobel Peace Prize by sharing its history and those who have been awarded the prize which was started by Alfred Nobel. Below is the center; I decided to change the look of the photo in order to give it a classic look.
For dinner, my friend Karen and I met with her husband Morten who suggested a tapas restaurant which recently opened on the river. For me, having tapas is a real treat... It’s my favorite :) Here are some of the tapas we had.
Soooo.... To answer the question from my last post on Norway. What was that orange stuff that was being squeezed out of tube? Well, the answer is Salmon Paste! Nice job on the guessing everyone ;)
