  •  Enjoyed Oslo a great deal when we were there. (5+ / 0-)

    A great walking city. Thanks for the reminder and the photos.

    ps Bergen was outstanding also.

    I really must find a good sig line!

    •  it is very pedestrian-friendly (6+ / 0-)

      Many sections are closed off completely to cars.

      It was horribly expensive there, though. The Norwegian economy has been doing very well--they have very low unemployment and there is lots of wealth flowing to the country from North Sea oil. Great for the Norwegians, but not so great for the tourists.  ;)

      There are lots of little food stands everywhere where you can get snacks--they have a hot dog sausage thingie wrapped in a flat bread made with potatoes. Those were GREAT and I had them virtually every day.  :)

      They also had some fish-paste kind of stuff that Torfinn had me try---that was, um, NOT as great.  ;)

      In the end, reality always wins.
