Well, I thought so too at first when I was writing that :) ... but then I
remembered (actually, got stopped in traffic for 15 minutes) that the
parties from the Sudan are here at the moment, trying to iron things out
and I realized that in its own way, it _is_ a major city.

A small town too. Yesterday, when I walked home, I passed through the very
center (I live more or less in the center too), past "Stortorvet" (Main
Market). They were having a "F?rik?l" (F?r i k?l ... literally "Mutton in
cabbage" ... and that's what it literally is too) festival. They had a
huge, and I mean huge, pot in the middle of the market and were dishing
the stuff out to anyone who would eat it. I though "what the hell, food's
expensive in Oslo. I'm not going to pass by a free meal." I took a plate
and a few shots and burped wet woolies the rest of the evening.

Leica shots ... have to wait until I get home to process and scan them.
