The promised land

Many of you have for sure heard about The Little Match Girl written by H.C. Andersen first published December 1845, where a poor girl selling matches on the street takes shelter in a nook and lights the matches to warm herself. In their light, she sees several lovely visions including a Christmas tree and a holiday feast. I almost felt like that girl on my way back from the city looking into the promised land of ladies and colorful dresses in a shop at Skovveien.

On my strolling in the snowy Oslo this afternoon I found more motives for Photo Safari.
The Frogner streets are loaded with snow, and people are digging the cars in and out for parking.Those still using bicycles must also find spades or other tools for removing the snow.At the Parliament the Lions are covered with snow, and heavy tools must be used at Eidsvoll square in front of Grand Hotel. If you do not want to use your foot or have forgotten your skis, you can expect full busses and street trams. Hopefully you will be home in time for dinner or the nine a clock news.
Have a nice Sunday

Så dere hatt fått ny levering av snø igjen? Her er det heldigvis kun et par cm og solen har tittet fram i dag også. Deilig!

Herre fred så mye snø dere har!! Kan bare tenke meg hvordan forholdene er der nede på veiene, ikke til å holde ut sikkert. Er vel noe dårlig med lagringslpass for snøen også midt i byen der sikkert. Har ikke halvparten engang vi her i midt norge, men en skal vel ikke godte seg så alt for tidlig...

Flotte klær da, godt du ennå har øynene med deg. Men hvilke av de antrekkene der passer best på en off road sykkel på vei til et sykehus mon tro???

What an enormous load of snow. I wish you could send some of it to us. We have got rain only, sometimes a wet sun. It's not really cold, though we have had ice and my daughter and grandson went skating.
Ha det bra!

Ååååå send litt snø oppover til oss her. Vi har så alt for lite;) Men på den andre siden så er det hærligt å se snø-bildene dine. Hovedstaden er vakker i hvitt! Og det første ble så klart en favoritt hos meg! Et kjempefoto!

Ha en koselig helg, Arne:)

Klem fra meg:)
