Well…. after about three hours of sleep last night, I took the bus to Oslo this morning for the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize. Ok, you’re right, unless I was press, there wasn’t a chance I could have actually seen the awarding, but it was pretty cool just to be there. Oslo is a fairly quiet city, and the commotion around the city hall building definitely proved something big was going on.
There’s us in front of the city hall before the ceremony. And then… as luck would have it, we walked out of the cafe where we stopped to warm up just as two of the women who were awarded the prize were making their public appearance. You can see one of them in the purple hat. It was pretty cool.
Speaking of cool, the weather in Oslo was freezing today. Tights under jeans and a sweatshirt under my coat weren’t enough to keep me warm; nevertheless, I’m really happy we got to go.
