|Stortinget (The National Parliament)|
I spent a beautiful day in Oslo. I started off with a nice breakfast and then I made my way outside. One of the first buildings I encountered was the National Parliament building of Norway and there were tours going as well. So, I followed some people and ended up waiting for nothing because we were ten minutes late. Fortunately an hour and a half later there was another tour and I made sure I was on time for that! We were told about the history of the building, the history of Parliament and were allowed to take photos all the way through!
|The 'Fram' (Forwards)|
After that I made my way up the hill to the King's palace, which was in scaffolding because of works to the roof. No nice photos of course, but I tried my best. After a spot of lunch I made my way to the harbour because I wanted to visit a museum on the other side of the harbour (I needed to take a ferry to get there or go the very very very long way round). I wasn't quite sure what museum it was going to be: I only had the choice between 6! It was either Viking ships, Norwegian houses from all over, a church, crossing the Pacific, the Norwegian Maritime Museum or the Fram Museum. I picked the last one in the end.
|Five Norwegians made it to the South Pole first|
The Fram museum is a museum dedicated to a ship. It made three notable voyages in its 'working' life: the more or less forgot the first two, but the third was a real blow to the British: it was the ship that took Roald Amundsen and his crew to Antarctica, making it possible for them to beat Scott and his crew by a whole month in being the first to reach the South Pole.
Now of course you are all wondering about all those naked people now, never mind about what else I did today: what about them? Well, Oslo is very keen on statues and they are everywhere! There was two naked girls, two naked boys (with a certain part of their anatomy very shiny I must say) and there was a mother with her two children. All in the buff! But, so I wouldn't offend anyone, I show you the one above: of a naked mother and her naked child(!).
