    Here's all I know about Norway:

    Norway is a Scandinavian country encompassing mountains, glaciers and deep coastal fjords. Oslo, the capital, is a city of green spaces and museums, including the Edvard Munch Museum and the Norsk Folkemuseum, a collection of open-air historic buildings. Preserved 10th-century Viking ships are displayed at the Vikingskipshuset. Norway is also known for fishing, hiking and skiing – notably at Lillehammer’s Olympic resort.

    @garypagetwo when is the best time to visit Oslo? What sites should I see while I'm there? What activities do you recommend? Best place to go skiing? Best place for a rusty trombone?

    Gary, is is true you can only buy alcohol from stores called Vinmonopolet? There are only one or two in each city, and none in the countryside towns?
