The Nobel Prize venue - we did not win (photo from 1988 visit)
Now sporting eye bags that are large enough to
carry groceries, I somehow managed to get my raccoon-looking self out to the
street at . A $30 taxi
ride took me the few miles to Paddington Station for the ($35) Express train to
Heathrow, just in time to get through airport security. (Note: being
cattle-prodded seems somehow more civilized when being done by those with
British accents) And then on to my flight into Scandinavia.
just a transfer point, but from the air it is just as green and beautiful as I
recall from my trip there in 1988. During that visit, we were invited to the
hall where they hand out the Nobel Peace Prize - but on our visit they only
handed out ham sandwiches.
Then on to St. Petersburg, Russia.
