I meant to do it last Thursday, but I ran out of time: Clematis has been updated.
You see, I couldn't update it at the weekend, because I was in Oslo being cold.
James is currently studying in Oslo for a few months, and so Steve and I hopped on a plane and sped over the North Sea to see him. It was nice, both seeing James again and Oslo.
If there is any city that is the most different to New York, it would have to be Oslo. There's just no comparing the two and, believe me, I tried! Oslo is small and quiet and surrounded by countryside and expensive, but lets not dwell on that. It had a very nice atmosphere. Norwegians strike me as being calm, sensible and considerate people; it made me quite ashamed to see how environmentaly friendly they are. And they all speak English, nearly almost fautless too; which also makes me ashamed because I cannot speak any other languages at all.
So we walked around a little and saw the Olympic ski jump and ate sausages and walked in some hills and went on a boat and saw the King's house and stuff. While outside the Viking museum, which was closed so we couldn't go in, Steve found a BookCrossing book, which is cool. I'd never heard about this book crossing thing before, but I'm very taken with the idea, I may release some books of my own, but I don't really want to part with any, I may have to buy some for the purpose. *excited*
*mope* But now I have to go do more coursework.
