Christmas and New Year at 60 Degrees North

Oslo is surprisingly far north, and surprisingly warm given that fact. But still you see frozen sea, and can take pictures of the sun rising at 09:45h and setting at 14:00h. Of course being crazy Norwegians, sports activities do not stop. Definitely not a good time of year for touring cycling. Here are a few pictures to support these statements.

  1. Of course you are pushing a penguin around a skating rink. Why would that be unusual in Norway? Happy New Year to all!

  2. Happy new year! Nice pictures, btw. Person after Mr. Nipen up that hill does not seem to share his enthusiastic smile.
