I’m finally in Oslo – and too tired to do anything about it.
Anyway Soph gave me a personal guided tour of Oslo. She lives on the outskirts of the city, so we followed the grey fettuccini freeways around and down underground into the city centre. In an attempt to lessen traffic in the city centre, Norway has been building these gigantic highways and gradually phasing out smaller roads. I’m not sure I’m really a fan of how they look — but they are incredibly convenient, super sophisticated and built for a good cause. When I think of Oslo I think of these roads.
We approached the little city centre, passing by leafy parks and crossing over ashfelt streets, pressed neatly with metal tram tracks. We drove past the incredible architecture of the Oslo opera house and Frogner park. And drove past a few other things I can’t recall. Then we called it. Time to have a beer.
And that’s about it for today 🙂
