    Last days in Oslo

    June 28, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Have really enjoyed exploring Oslo further . The Nobel Peace prize museum was very moving. There was a very emotive exhibition on refugees that reminded me of the stories of so many of the refugees I taught. Todd and Col would have loved the Kontiki museum we went to with the actual raft as pictured here as well as another place which covered adventures to the Arctic and Antarctic in wooden ships. Today we went to the modern art gallery which had some interesting and also bizarre pieces. We were getting very tired and sat down in two huge red chairs and watched a terrible short film that made us laugh so hard we hardly were able to get out of the chairs. Bette decided to join the school children who were dressing up and having their photos taken. The attendant said the masks were just for kids but I managed to take this photo of her in the monster mask. See if the little ones recognise her!! We saw all theses little kids on outings today. Two carers pushed 6 kids about Ned's age in these two red wooden wagons . They let the kids run around on the grass for a while then lay them all down under a tree covered each one up and they all went to sleep. They were still there when we came out of the gallery. We wondered what magic spell they had performed. We then took a ferry out on the fjord. Early to bed tonight as we are off on our Iceland adventure tomorrow. XxxxxRead more
