Fårikål – Norway’s National Dish

24 Sep 2015 – Mutton In Cabbage

Mon: after seeing Olai to daycare, it was time for laundry and the day just flew by.



Tue: at Norway Designs, one of my favourite Norwegian designer  houses.


Appreciations to Clarie for a wonderful afternoon and a common meeting place here in OSL, the fountain by Nationaltheatret. We got together since last year when she is here for meetings and conferences. My wonderful student and baby-sitter from Tromsø days in the 1970s, now a mother of 2 teenagers and a professor in fishery at the world’s northernmost university – UiT.


Kunstnernes Hus – Tesserakt by Tine Aamodt autumn 2015 winner. Like Noen fine dager=some fine days made completely of pine by Erlend Leirdal.



Amazing staircase with 100% marble railing. Not sure what those candy-stripe men were doing??


Tanum’s readings and book signing from Erlend Loe and Arne Hjeltnes new publications. Wish I had more space in my bookshelf 🙂


Fårikål=mutton in cabbage and such a generous portion in one of the oldest building, Stortorvets Gjæstgiveri***from the 1700s.


Time to go separate paths at the train station, she to catch her train to the airport for her flight back to Tromsø. And me for the metro to Majorstuen. Until then safe travels to us all…


Wed: on the way back after delivering Olai to the daycare, decided to walk thru’ Frognerparken and the first for this trip. Going to be another happening weekend as I am preparing to take a 7hrs train ride to visit Anne&Roar in Trondheim. Return train tickets NOK448 S$78.

When people rely on surface appearances and false racial stereotypes, rather than in-depth knowledge of others at the level of the heart, mind and spirit, their ability to assess and understand people accurately is compromised ― James A. Forbes
