oslo

hello, and sorry for my silence. i have a couple of posts planned of my vacation in denmark and our drive through sweden but i haven't organized all my photos yet so they will come a bit sporadically and not chronological.
this week, from monday to wednesday, i was in oslo with my mom to fix a couple of things before i move down there. so now i have a small dorm room, on the tenth floor with an amazing view over oslo. i'm really excited to move in, the only downside is that it is unfurnished, so i need to go furniture shopping. we also walked around like tourists, visiting the norwegian folk-museum and my moms big wish to see the fram-museum.

walking through oslo was a bit strange. there were heaps of flowers and broken and boarded windows from the blast everywhere. you kept thinking about what terrible thing had happened here. it was really moving to see how many flowers people had put to pay their respects. my thoughts have been with the families who have lost a loved one every day.
