Afternoon in Oslo
After a brief visit back to the hotel to allow me time to charge my smartphone and to pick up a battery pack we again set off again with the interactive map. The first image was a bit more difficult to find as it was high up in a small square down an alley off Torggata.
Dolk: “Priest” (2009) which is close to Torggata 11, 0181 Oslo (Backyard)
In the alley were these:
We walked along Kristian Augusts Gate and there was our final mural of the day.
Super-A: “RøeKøe” (2015) close to Kristian Augusts gate 12, 0164 Oslo
We now headed towards Aker Brygge and passed these two sculptures remembering suffering.
And for our girls this wonderful A-frame outside a cafe.
I only know
that people call
whenever I express
from a doormat
When people tell
me that I run
like a girl, I
just tell them
that if they ran
a little FASTER
they could too
The Silver Diver (again!)
On the way to the Brygge I couldn’t pass the silver diver without grabbing more images.
As we turned to walk down the Brygge we passed the Nobel Peace Prize building.
A late lunch at Olivia BRYGGE
We were not very innovative for lunch and we stopped at another Olivia restaurant. This time we sat outside next to the promenade and even better in the sunshine. Across the aisle we chatted to a Norwegian couple from outside Bergen who were in Oslo for a long weekend. They were celebrating just being retired. They told us about the snow falls they had had when they lived in Tromsø for a few years So heavy in fact that at times it could be quite scary.
For our late lunch we had salads accompanied again by Hanson beer.
A slight diversion from my usual images, here are the images from the walls in the men’s toilets at the restaurant….
… and from the bottom of the stairs.
The restaurant was close to the Lectern ice cream shack and for dessert we had ice cream.

Relaxing lunch with great views
Sitting outside this restaurant in the sunshine made for a perfect lunch of excellent salad. Friendly service with lots of conversations, very efficient too.
Uncomfortable when paying another server as to how the card machine was presented to us – tip?
Walking back from the Brygge we were surprised by the sheer number of people on the ferries that left the dock to go down the Oslo fjord.
The large open space in front of the town hall that had been fenced off was now being cleared as we walked past. Rather than walk back to the centre and pass the parliament building we decided to have a longer walk and followed the road around between the hill and the fjord towards the castle.
