Munch's "The Scream": my theory

On my recent trip to Norway, in Oslo's National Gallery, I got to see one of Edvard Munch's copies (he actually did several) of his best known work, "The Scream". This one is behind a glass case, in order to prevent it being stolen again!

For decades, art critics and historians have speculated on the true meaning of the work.

So now here is my theory.
This represents the reaction of a tourist on seeing Oslo restaurant prices.

So what do YOU think?

A picture of Hell!

Within the last few weeks, I have literally gone through Hell.

And I have come back.

Yes, I really, really, did go through Hell.

On a train.

Here's the proof. Here is a picture of Hell. Actually, this is is the train station.

If you ever land at Vaernes Airport, the airport serving the city of Trondheim, you can get a train from the Airport to Trondheim Central which takes about 45 minutes, and after the Airport, the next stop is Hell.

I didn't get out of the train; the doors opened, and I just pointed my camera and clicked. In fact, I was hoping to come back to Hell on another day to have a proper look around. But I didn't get the chance.

The word "Hell" obviously means something in the Norwegian language. But I can always say, if anybody ever tells me to go to Hell, that I've already been there!

I'm back!

Sorry I haven't posted for over a month. I was on holidays, which left me with a backlog of work when I got back, so this blog has had to take a back seat.

I went to Norway. More to follow, including photos, about this beautiful corner of God's earth.

So now I'm back in wet Ireland; but in fact, it has been quite wet in Norway for the past week as well.

As for me, I had one bad weather day in Norway; the rest of my holiday was mainly like in this picture:

Try not to be too jealous!
