Today was such a bright and beautiful day it would have been a shame to spend it anywhere else than outside. Although we´re heading towards the end of February, the weather is still quite crisp and we had to go back for gloves, to put it like that. 😉 We live in the Eastern part of Oslo, the multicultural “old town” and love it! It´s such a nice and friendly place, a brisk 10 minutes walk from the city center and only a stone throw away from Grønland and all its colorful (and extremely cheap) eateries. 😉 So we walked to Punjab, as I mentioned in my earlier post, but couldn´t settle for a potato nan, so we had the whole shebang- Chicken Karhai. Oh, yum! If you´re ever in Oslo, it´s a must!
On our way there we found a rug somebody forgot or dumped in the snow and took a couple of funny pics of Sam. He was impatient to walk further, though, there were so many smells and dogs to be checked! 😉
“We´re roasting our own coffee, come on in and watch”, they´re boasting at Kaffebrenneriet Grønland. 😉
Besides being colorful and half shabby, Grønland also means cheap fruit and vegetables. Unfortunately Oslo doesn´t have that many vegetable markets, but they seem to be working on that lately. Can´t wait for the outdoor season to come! 😉
Old meets new (personally I´m not so fond of new architecture) by the Aker river. And the ducks are sunbathing. On our way we met a cute doggy and they sniffed a couple of times, Sam was pretty interested, he literally jumped the man carrying her. 😉
Eldorado used to be a cinema and hosts now one of the biggest book stores in Scandinavia. The Nut Cracker adds a bit of a Viennese charm and color to the street.
We ended our small excursion with a coffee at Kafé Nord while Sam waited patiently outside and chewed on a stick. We then walked all the way back home to burn the calories.;-) The streets were filled with sun and people and Oslo was a pretty sight. I hope spring is around the corner!
I hope you had a wonderful Sunday, too!
