Last day in Oslo

Here we are on Saturday morning in Oslo, so what shall we do? - Obviously, our fourth parkrun in eight days. 

This one involved either a short bus ride up a very steep hill (me, S and P), or a very long and tiring run - Daz.

Anyway we all got to the start safely and made it round to the finish, although the course was definitely a quarter of a kilometre longer than usual.

We are assuming that mål means finish in Norwegian.

After a late breakfast at the hotel we had a couple of hours to spare before heading to the airport.

We decided to wander down to the harbour and to the fabulous Opera and Ballet Concert Hall.

Everywhere was bright white marble which without sunglasses must have been blinding. You could also walk up the sloping roof to viewing areas at the top. After his morning exertions Darren decided to sit this one out, so I hiked up for some fantastic views.

Just opposite the concert hall a new Munch museum is taking a rather wobbly shape. There is also an enormous sculpture that might be of someone reading their phone, although then again it was hard to tell.

Then it was a short walk to the station for our ride to the airport.

Ps, last night we went out to dinner with Susan and Paul, and then afterwards they took us to the National Museum as it was open until 10pm.

Saw lots of brilliant Scandinavian art as well as the most famous of all.....

The scream by Edvard Munch
