Spring in Oslo at last! I was supposed to stay in and read today, but I couldn't make myself in the end. So I went out to meet Ingebjørg, bought an ill-adviced pair of shorts, had lunch and Oslo's best Gelato at La Dolce Vita. I got off a few stops early on the way home, and walked through Grünerløkka. I had to beg a man to let me join him at the table to get somewhere to sit, but I managed to have a coffee in the sun. If only I could have Pimm's in London, as well. Or celebrate the 17th of May in Rome – perhaps I will. If we can find an affordable hotel, and I work and read like my life depends on it the next weeks.
