Dressed for party

This photo is from the courtyard of Oslo city hall. You can see quite a lot of the women wearing "bunad", the traditional Norwegian costume.

We were all there to celebrate the civil confirmation of about 100 young men and women, and among them was my son. A beautiful and proud day. :-)

The old tram

This is not a common sight in Oslo. It's the first and only time I've seen one of these really old trams. You may remember the photos of one of the more modern trams (called "trikk" in Norwegian) that we've showed you earlier. These are a common sight in the center of Oslo, but this old one was probably only used for a short time. It would be really cool to be able to ride it!

I don't know how old this tram is, but I'll try to find out.

Edit: I've already got help from a friend, who sent me this link (only Norwegian). It says that this is a veteran tram called "70". It was built in Hamburg, Germany, and was delivered in 1913. It was in use until 1968, and was restored for the 100th anniversary of running electrical trams in 1994.

The tram can be rented for parties, making of movies, weddings etc. There is room for 52 passengers in the first motor car and 52 passengers in the towed vehicle.

What a great idea for a special party!
