Oslo, Norway

As usual in a new city, we went on an orientation walk with a local guide. I can't say enough about this Rick Steves' tour. Everything has been so well planned and organized, but we are definitely on the move pretty constantly and seeing a lot. Today we went to the Norwegian Resistance Museum then caught a tram to the Gustav Vigeland Sculpture Park, a wonderful and beautiful 75 acre park. It has 227 bronze and granite sculptures.

These little boys were so cute and so typically Norwegian. I asked their mother if I could take their picture.

Next day we went to Bygdoy island to visit the Thor Heyerdahl Kon-Tiki museum, and the Fram museum showcasing the polar expeditions of Nansen and Amundsen.

Here's Chuck with his hero Roald Amundsen.

On our way back to the mainland, we stopped in at the Nobel Peace Prize Museum.
