Fredrikstad

Gave a talk in Fredrikstad, a very cool city on the southern coast of Norway near the Swedish border. Unfortunately, I ran out of time to explore this city. I didn't get the chance to take the ferry across the river to the fortress, now an area called Old Town. I had to catch a bus, two hours to Oslo to catch my flight, and I very nearly missed that bus. I ran up to it while it was pulling away and I knocked on the door. The driver gave me a tired look, but he let me on. Next trip to Fredrikstad, I'm going to plan on staying an extra day. Beautiful city, beautiful feeling.
