Looking through the Oslo guide we found the free section on what to do around town. One of the things was the Munch Art GalleryBBC web site.
After the gallery we packed up our stuff and walked down to the dock boarding the Pearl of Scandinavia. Our route to the dock was interesting as we passed through the prostitute strip in town with all the hookers on the street corners. They were in skimpy outfits and short skirts, no mean feat as it was bellow zero, so you really have to give them credit for their dedication to their profession. On one corner there were a heap of dodgy guys loitering around and just when we were quickening our pace to get out of this seedy part of town, a police car drove past and they all bolted away. We have never seen people move with such purpose. Like rats fleeing a sinking ship.
Our transport to Copenhagen was very up market. We paid just slightly more for our berth on the ferry than it cost for accommodation in Oslo and it was much nicer with bunk beds and an ensuite bathroom in the cabin. We wandered around the ship checking out the restaurants and facilities and having a Danish beer (8% alcohol volume we were told) before heading back to the room to watch a DVD on the laptop and enjoy, weirdly enough, a chocolate milk in a can (alcohol free).
