norway no more

My final day in Oslo - in Norway for that matter - was spent almost entirely in the shade. Apparently it is the hottest day on record for the summer, which, believe me, felt pretty damn hot after these recent rainy weeks. Very happy to have serendipitously reconnected with a fellow bus traveler whom I met on the way to my dairy farm some weeks ago. White wine, a balcony, and a final taste of the best salmon known to all of mankind were all generously shared. The hours counted down and then it was time to make my weary, woozy way to the airport. Were I not whisking off to reunite briefly with my dearest friend in this world (and her mom! hi!) I would be completely overcome with sadness. My love for this country is no secret. To be honest I can't quite believe I've managed to tear myself away.
