Afternoon in Oslo.
Recently I got a chance to visit Oslo again – this time for a job interview. However, since the tickets are so expensive, I decided to arrive a little bit earlier to visit some places.

Albertine i politilægens venteværelse
When you want to imagine how Norway looked under the poverty in the second part of 19th century, you must check on this amazing Norwegian artist, and one of the leaders of Oslo artistic Bohemia, Christian Krohg.

Monthly living cost in Norway.
One thing is known about this beautiful country – it’s rough with its prices. Especially when you’re living as a student, on a really tight budget, counting every little coin twice. But how much exactly it’s for one month of living here?
