  • In every turn there is carved in Lisbon wood the story of Tor, Odin and other Nordic gods. The Trabay si is already a stroll and with the historical summaries everything becomes a class

  • I wonder how it is possible that in a civilized country like Norway the main museum remains closed for over a year waiting for the new headquarters. How long is the move? From all over the world you come to Oslo for the exhibits, primarily Munch, and there is no effort at least for a temporary solution.
