07/27/05 (Wednesday) - Oslo

We got up around 8:00, had breakfast at 8:30, then took the T-Bahn to Oslo and walked up to the castle area.  As you can see, it is wonderful weather today – sunshine and breezy.  Later in the afternoon, it turned cloudy with intermittent drizzle.

 

We walked to the Resistance museum and spent an hour or so there.  Fascinating stories - they lived through horrible conditions (and often did not).

 

We toured the castle where we had a a mishap in the chapel.  Mom took a little fall on the steps (missed the last one). 

                                               

After a little rest, we walked in the drizzle to the restaurant across from the Grand Hotel.  I had a smoked trout sandwich.  We then went to a Reba-1000 (supermarket in the basement), picked some gjetöst and other Norwegian delicacies, then headed back to the T-Bahn.

 

Unfortunately, the T-Bahn was delayed due to traffic (U-2 concert that night!).   We finally got back to the hotel and rested for ˝ hour.  Reidar showed up at 5:40 while I was talking to Judy via the laptop.

Reidar and Marit N’s friend picked  us up in a bus and took us to Lars & Evelyn’s for sandwiches, wine, strawberries and beer.  We got back to the hotel around 11:30 (another late night).
