June 17, 2013

The delegation is sucessfully underway! All delegates ( although sadly not all their luggage) arrived in Oslo by late afternoon.

After a drink in the hotel's sky bar, which boasts a panoramic Vista of Oslo, we strolled to the opening event of the Inherent Dignity , Equality, and Rights conference at Oslo Town Hall.

To get to the hall, we pass the parliament building, a shopping district, and just see the royal palace.

At the town hall, which hosts the Nobel Peace Prize each December, the Mayor of Oslo warmly welcomed conference attendees.

We are treated to a special tour of the building by a very knowledgable guide, and get an up close look at it's fantastic art, including an Evard Munch.
