KEYS TO A GOOD EXCHANGE YEAR - First Key - Second Key - Third Key - Fourth Key - Fifth Key

19. januar 2012


Fikk en bok til jul som heter D is for Dala Horse - A Nordic Countries Alphabet. Den en side til hver bokstav i alfabetet, og hver bokstav står for noe nordisk. Har tatt bilde av O-siden. Kanskje lærer du noe nytt om Oslo.
Her er det som står på siden:
At the head of the fjord is a sight to behold - O is for Oslo, on thousand years old.
Oslo is the capital of Norway and also its largest city. With a population of nearly 1.5 million people, Oslo sist at the northernmost end of the Oslofjord. Founded in the year 1048 by King Harald III of Norway, the city was nearly lost to a fire in 1624. When it was rebuilt it was renamed Christiania. Effective January1, 1925, the name was restored to Oslo. Oslo is often reffered to as the "City of Tigers" related to a reference by author Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson in 1870, although there are no tigers in Norway. The reference was related to the author's perception of Oslo as a cold and dangerous place. Today Oslo is a thriving metropolitan city.
