Bangalore, India and Oslo, Norway
On a recent business trip to India and Norway, I had lunch on my birthday with colleagues in Bangalore after 3 productive working days. The next day, we left for Oslo, Norway.
In January, the sun comes up at 845AM and sets at 415PM in Oslo. So we did not see much of the sun for the 3 days we were there. Sunday morning we went to Mass at St. Olaf Catholic Church, which is the smaller church in the distance in the picture below/right. The large church in the foreground is Trinity Church, of the Church of Norway (Lutheran).
We had Sunday to relax a little in Oslo, so we went to the
Viking Ship Museum where there are
three excavated ships from burial sites near Oslo dating from the 9th to 10th Century. The centerpiece
of the museum is the Oseberg ship (picture below).
