We went to the Vigeland sculpture museum when we first got into Oslo today. It took about an hour to walk through the sculpture gardens. Vigeland wanted to portray the circle of life. So all the sculptures were nude, so that they would be timeless.
And then we did a driving tour of Oslo and stopped at the new opera house.
We checked into the Bondeheimen Hotel, a traditional Norwegian hotel right off the pedestrian street. Linda and Virginia's room was right across the courtyard from Laura and Sara's.
Then Laura and Sara met up with Laura's friend at an advertising agency here. Very fun to talk with a young Norwegian.
The four of us girls at a the Grand Cafe just around the block from our hotel. The people next to us noticed our accents. Turns out they were from Montevideo. What are the chances. But, you know Linda she can't go anywhere without meeting someone from Monte. They were Knutsons and Johnsons.
We went to the palace, where King Harald and Queen Sonja live. And we saw the changing of the guards. It's what you'd imagine they do. (Like in England)
It was hot today!
