Tonight Norway and Switzerland will play football against each other. Therefore Oslo is filled with people wearing bright red color shirts. It's amazing to see how we can get so sentimental when living abroad even about football. 🙂
Last night Norwegians elected their new government. The right wing won. Not massively but still won.
One day later the beautiful weather changed from very sunny since weeks to stormy this morning!
Welcome back the weather seems to formate a big stormy party to celebrate it! 😀
This summer while Francis trains for Oslo marathon which will take place in a few weeks, I follow him by bike. We usually run and bike beside the sea during 10 kilometers. We leave Oslo city behind us, pass Bygdøy (a peninsula with nice museums and beaches), and go until Fornebu where many headquarters of the biggest Norwegian companies are such as Statoil (biggest state owned oil company) and Telenor (the Norwegian telecommunication company). The area is really peaceful and beautiful even though it's a company area.
The picture below was taken at the beach in front of Statoil.
To celebrate Summer Oslo Tech Center and Parken Bakery (the building where I work) organized a beach party on the top of the building with a great view over Oslo. 200 persons enjoyed 66 kg of meat nicely cooked.
Beach party in Oslo with Palm Trees! 😀
Recently the coffee shop which was around the corner of our house got renovated and changed its name from "Le Rustique" to "Kolonialen". Being so close and having wifi, I enjoy going there to read or work. So I was quite happy when it reopened to be able to spend some time there again. However my mind kept wondering... Is it politically correct to enjoy a coffee at a place called Kolonialen? What do you think?
