$4.50... hmm.. are we talking a 1,5 or 2 lter bottle or just a 0,5L ?

Even for Oslo that sounds unbelievable if the 0,5L but it is without a doubt an expensive place..

But Geneva - oh man now there's an expensive place ( or atleast it was 10 years ago - paid more than 20 dollars for a Pizza Hut pizza ( only one I've ever tried ) in 1999 currency, now it's probable double that!


On the positive side Oslo is a great city - very compact yet certainly not lacking - with a lot of interesting things going on both in terms of construction but also with nightlife and options..

For those interested I'm sure we'll have a great time and I'd gladly give a couple rounds if beer prices is an issue...


( alternatively we could have a halfway meet on Iceland - inflation is killing them so there prices shouldn't be too bad, atleast not compared to a few years ago )

Iceland! When's that on our list? 2013, right? Hopefully they'll be in better shape by then.

Do Icelanders speak English like their Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish cousins?

I have to say, as an English speaker traveling through Scandinavia is such a breeze. I don't think I've ever met anyone between the ages of 12 and 60 who wasn't able to hold a decent conversation in English.

Of course they do. It's all part of the plan.

So, I finally bought train tickets to Oslo for the SSC N&B meet weekend (last weekend in July). Now I've got to book a hotel, which'll be significantly more expensive :\

Any SSP:ers still up for it?

I'm in Oslo from July 20th-27th, so I'll make it. Don't know about Fusey, I'm not sure if he even knows yet.
