105/365 - February 16th 2018
Today was a bit of a 'not sure what will happen' day. I had a couple of meetings in the morning, and one scheduled for the afternoon. The last meeting wrapped up a lot quicker than expected, and it was deja vu from my last trip to Oslo a couple of months ago.....at the airport far too early for my flight, with lots of time to kill.
I did manage to pick up a couple of great local beers to take home, although it took some hunting to find a shop selling them. Norway has some crazy laws about selling alcohol. Supermarkets etc. can only sell alcoholic drinks below 4.7%, and only at certain times. Anything over 4.7% can only be bought from the state run Vinmonopolet (wine monopoly!) stores. They are much more sparse and stock different items in different stores. Add to this the cost of most drinks, (the bottles I bought were 89NOK, over £8 each!), it's an expensive 'hobby' in Norway!
