More from the Vigeland Park

A few days ago I wrote about the Vigeland Park in Oslo. I talked about how popular it is and how many people visit it, but I guess I didn't actually talk about how much I like it. It is definitely one of my favorite places in Oslo and I love hanging out there, running, playing frisbee, relaxing in the grass, or showing people around. I found some of my photos from three years ago so I wanted to post those as well.

Two of the sculptures from the bridge (iron):

I can see why you would like it so much -- it looks beautiful (and with fantastic art!) Is that you among the sculptures?

That looks like a really cool park. I am just catching up on your blog, and it's interesting to see the similarities (and differences) between Norway and Alaska. Do you live in Norway now?

Love your photos! It really is an amazing park and the sculptures are fantastic.

Anne:

Really cool statues! Sounds like a fanatastic place to hang out.

It looks like a very cool park to hang. Beautiful statues and so green!

Yes, that's me! Cindy Ruth, I don't live there now, I lived there until I was 20 and have been abroad mostly since then.
