You will be Guide of Course.
It was on Saturday I met her for the second Saturday in a row– a very foggy Day in Oslo, besides I did forget the batteries for my Camera. What a disaster. And I had planned for her to see Oslo out of the normal tourist tracks. Shit happens.
But Sunday, I met Sylvien
from Holland again, her last Day in Norway this time. Our plan was to visit the National Gallery, so stay tuned to my report:
I went to my local Bus Station around 11 am.
After 4 minutes I’m at the local Train Station. It will reopen in a new standard on Monday, February 20 – 2012. 12 Minutes to Downtown Oslo.
Here are some Photos from the Train Ride to Down Town Oslo.
Sylvien in the National Gallery
Here she is again. Hmm, I think she took a photo of me??
This painting by Harald Sohlberg
And this one by Jens Ferdinan Willumsen
– after the Tempest
Above some more from the National Gallery. You might find other paintings and Sculpture more fascinating – it’s free enterence on Sundays. Besides Norwegain Painters it’s a large collection of French, and Dutch and German Painters as well. Just know it’s a great Collection of Candian Painters called “Painting Canada”. Tom Thomson and his “School” is the main attraction. This special Excibition will we poen until May 13 – 2012.
The Gallery have artifacts from around year 2000 bc.
And a special room for Edvard Munch
. Sylvian and me did visit the Munch Museum in Oslo on Saturday. So we reached two great galleries in two Days.
Well. after spending 2 1/2 hours with art from several countries and times it’s nice to have a hot chocolade.
Down to the Hotel Lobby
And here you see Sylvien with her luggage heading for the Train to Oslo Airport.
We had a great time togeghter.
And happy I connected Maria
and Sylvien as FB friends. They both love Norway and I love them as well. Can it better?
More to come…
