I bought a ticket from the vending machine and then just below the airport there was Oslo railway station boarded the train for Asker. After a very good train ride I arrived at Asker, My contact ( vendor ) was there to pick me from the station. We then proceed towards the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel, my room was not ready, so kept my bags at the resception and we proceed to explore the Norway. We went to town central for some site seeing.

Wow, Norway is not yet complete, now we can expect Singapore? Good, so how many days & when can we expect a virtual Singapore?

@Uday - why's that car swinging? Taking some rest after long run?

How do these Europeans manage to keep their places so neat/clean/tidy without traces of dust/dirt or muck?

I can understand about ppl not littering, but what about other things I mentioned?

@Uday: Amazing place indeed. If you visit Norway again, do take a couple of days to visit Tromsø - way up in the northern part of the country. You can enjoy some dog sledding, and snow mobile-ing. The northern lights are also visible in certain months.
