EuroPride in Oslo


This year Oslo was the host of EuroPride. I went to take photos, I seem to have taken a hundred! There is so much colour. They collected near the Grønland police house, so I decided to go there first. You can sometimes get more interesting photos when people are not yet all in floats. I would like to have more photos here but did not know that I cannot upload anything straight  from my computer! I have only a few on Flickr. Then I went to a street corner further away when the Parade started. Later I moved to Karl Johan, where there were more people, I had to walk or run all the way as buses did not go there.

Earlier by the Opera house I had taken a photo of these guys.They were here to make a film of the EuroPride.



There were some clouds but it only started raining when the Parade reached the 'EuroPride Park' between the Town Hall and the sea.

What to do?

I wanted to buy a ticket to Helsinki and consulted the pages of the airline the Norwegian. In the end I bought from Finnair as they were a bit cheaper. This morning I was woken up by a phone message: Welcome aboard! The Norwegian. I called them to make sure there was no ticket for me. Unfortunately I had not looked up the  reference number which was on the bottom of the phone message, which would have told them who the real passanger was.  Later I was able to find on the net the page where I saw the message . It was the travel document to a certain person who I did not even know! There is no way to reply to the message and I was not going to call again, calls are expensive here. I wrote a message to the number I had called saying they had a wrong number, no answer.

So now the guy does not probably get any information from the airline, the plane is 40 minutes late. I just hope he stays near the gate. I would love to know his phone number.

I looked it up and it seems to be nothing like mine. Maybe it  is someone else  :-)

I talked to The Norwegian at the airport, they did not think it was important. When the time for the return flight of the guy came, they again contacted me. They will not call me again when he travels, I hope ;)
