A different suburb of Norway – Grunerlokka
The tram was not too busy and we wound our way back to the centre, passed Aker Brygge and carried on to parts of Oslo we had not visited before.
As the tram made its way we passed large murals painted on the side of houses. After passing a park we realised that we had now gone way past our planned stop. We left the tram and crossed over and caught the next tram back towards the city.
I wanted to see the Alice Pasquini mural and we used Google Maps and to get to the mural.
One of the pieces had been painted over with this
A gentle walk took us down to the next stop for the tram and then back into the city centre.
We left at a stop near the cathedral on Kirkegata and headed back down Karl Johans to the Cafe Cathedral.
We sat at a table by by Karl Johans Gate and ordered drinks. We chose the table because it was under an umbrella and in the shade. But we had missed that we were sitting now in the middle of a smoking area.
Thankfully our server moved us up to the tables on the mezzanine and we could enjoy our time without being enveloped in smoke.
We ordered a split menu of caprese salad and a pepperoni pizza with extra plates. The pizza was excellent and unlike the one at Olivia I could actually cut the crust without almost breaking the knife.
The lifts in the hotel had everchanging patterns – this a waterfall.
Central lunch venue
Sitting outside can be a problem due to small non-smoking area, our waiter moved us up to the terrace away from all the smokers We shared a pepperoni pizza and a cabrese salad – no issues in gaining an extra two plates.
Our service was fast and efficient..
