Og - ja - jeg strikkede på en strømpe.
Yesterday I had a short visit in Oslo (capital of Norway) due to a meeting. We arrived about 30 minutes early, and so we had time to cross the street(s) and take a look at the Opera House that actually was the next-door neighbor.
And - well - I was knitting a sock.
Can you imagine - they took our ship that's usually staying in Copenhagen! I don't think they call it the "Oslo-boat" in Norway, but maybe the "Copenhagen-boat"?
The Opera House is a real beauty. Built to look like a mountain-side with snow, made in white marble. Fortunately, it was unpolished. I guess it would be beyond slippery over winter if it was polished.... You can climb the slope all the way to the top, and actually, you can stand on the roof.
Mødet varede til sidst på eftermiddagen for vores vedkommende, og så gik det hjemad. Meget kort, men effektivt!
We didn't reach the top, but only climbed to the back of the house. We found this seagull behaving very well, willing to be a model! (Some of the other seagulls were gigantic!)
The meeting lasted until late afternoon for our part, and then we flew back home. Very short, but efficient!
