Oslo at a Glance

Two days in Oslo, sort of. Horribly tired on the first day, slept a long way into the second one. There is a lot of bronze statuary in Oslo. I think they hope that if they put up enough statues there won't be enough room for the beggars any more. So far they are wrong. Saw a museum full of Munch, he was a man with some serious issues, saw an old fortress and some viking ships.

I think Oslo is better than what I saw of it, but maybe not. I did see a statue of Abraham Lincoln.

From Oslo
You can't really see the inscription, but it reads "Presented to Norway by the people of North Dakota, USA. July 4th 1914." On the other side is "Government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth."

I have no idea.
