DETAILS FROM A DAY AT THE FORT
Akershus festning is an old fortress at the heart of Oslo. In the olden days it would have protected the city, then called Christiania, from attacks. Overlooking the fjord, harbour and city in general, made of stone, with small, and larger areas of grass and wild flowers, it is truly a peaceful place.
I am delighted to see that people are slowly introducing colour to their outfits: a scarf, shoes or socks. I in return feel like a great big show of colours, patterns and hats compared. As I say, every questionable look or comment is a compliment: because it means they noticed you.
