Well, as often happens, sleep on the airplane did not happen for most of us. To Murphy‘a delight, Oslo has many little playgrounds all over the city; including one right outside the central train station. You can’t do much better than a playground & ice cream after a long flight. We made it until 6:00 pm before all crashing. Of course Murphy & I were up sitting on the beautiful balcony at 2:00 am, but it was nice to see the city as it,mostly, slept.
We took a lovely walking tour of Oslo today. Our guide was wonderful. She showed us 2 amazing museums, the Oslo city hall and shared much local knowledge with us. Then, after a quick nap, we set out into the rain to see the Akershus Fortress and find some supper. Of course, this included several stops at small playgrounds!!! And now, here I am…sitting on our balcony at 4:30 am enjoying the city and the Pepsi Max from the hotel fridge.
