On Wednesday, our friend Andy whisked us away from breakfast and off we went to the Munich airport. We flew to Oslo with no difficulties. For some reason the Oslo airport is a long way from Oslo, so after a few attempts we got on a train for the city.

Once we got downtown and checked in, everyone scattered. Bracken and I went to eat at a nearby Irish Pub. The burgers were surprisingly good. They offered a product I’d never seen before called “American Hamburger Sauce”. It seems like it was ketchup, mustard, thousand island dressing, and rpickle relish; maybe mayo. It was good. It reminded me a bit of the sauce In & Out uses, so I guess it might be American after all. Later Brian joined us at the restaurant.

After supper, we stopped at an Oslo grocery store. I was excited to buy some lefse. Lefse is a thin tortilla-like bread made from potatoes. My family makes lefse for holidays, so I was excited to get some.

On the way back to the hotel we came upon a man-reading-a-newspaper sculpture. It made for some good photo clowning, but then a woman seated nearby began to give us an actual news report. She became more excited as she spoke. I guess she felt pretty strongly about the news!

We split up again and everyone walked around the city. We had grand plans for painting Oslo red and really living it up, but mostly we just went to sleep.

I want to send a shout-out to Mama Jackie and Mama Trula who are loyal readers of this blog (and as far as I know, might be the only two!) we love you Moms! Also happy 48th anniversary to Kitk & Trula Jamison. I’ll see you all soon.

 

Have good times,

Basil
