A lot of people who don't know Oslo very well, only think of the city center as Oslo. But the city is so much more. Most inhabitants live in the suburbs, which can often be compared to smaller towns. I live in one of these suburbs and sometimes feel like a small town citizen when I see familiar faces everytime I go to the grocer's shop or visit other places in this area.
This photo shows something typical for the suburbs. The blocks of flats surround small squares where you can find a playground and a place to rest for the parents. Some places offer a place to barbeque, so the people living here can meet neighbours and enjoy themselves in the long summer evenings.
As this photo shows, a sitting arrangement can be combined with a shed to park the bikes.
We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
