Newark Airport

Don't want to bore you, but this was a horrible flight. En route CUR-MIA, AA canceled our connecting flight - without telling us, but of course!
We tried other flights, all full, and re-booking for next day Continental Newark-Oslo ($2000 extra). Finally just used the vouchers, staid over.
In Newark, Continental just changed the booking without any further ado.
The trip Curaçao-Europe took as long as in the Constellation days of yore.

Just what grabbed the eyeball. Place is pretty cold! but could be worse...
You want to see the city, go there.
Pronounced 'Tromsuh' AKA "The Paris of the North".
That's pushing it quite a bit; it's even smaller than Willemstad, our home base.
One thing that I never saw before: traffic tunnels with roundabouts

We ran into a young... well, adolescent... blizzard there and fled back.
(hurry from the slurry-flurry—so surry... can't help it.)

the pause that refreshes

Our friend Rolf made a tour along the Norway coast and got absolutely bored to sickness with the beautiful scenery.
One beautiful scenery after the other, I mean to say. Well, here's some. Enjoy! as they say.

Don't want to brag, really! I have seen better Aurora pictures, but mostly much worse.
And these were made in like two hours the last-before-one night we were there
luck counts heavily in photography

To Snow and Back
Oslo City Snow

Oh, the pollution! (but what do you want after months of winter)-
Do you see any Poop? Ah rest me case, me Lud.

And finally, almost back home in the Terrific Tasteless Tropics:
Miami Hotel Room

but who devises this sort of thing? Now, really!
As Wodehouse says, this is not just God's punishment for our misdeeds, no...
somebody actually, purposefully, produces these &*%$#$!
