Oslo, pt 1

Here I am... in Norway?!?!?!?!?

I haven't been able to see a lot, so far. We drove from the airport to Oslo, which is a 40 km ride. I remember having a familiar feeling while looking at the landscape, which was nothing but trees and rocks: the sky is so big, so immense. I remember having the exact same feeling in Canada and that made me feel good (I MISS CANADA!).

After checking in at the hotel and resting for a couple of hours, we went out for dinner and I got to see a little more. People are modern, but not too modern. And they're nice, but not too nice.

I'm very curious about this place and these people. I keep wondering if they are that different from "us". At the same time, sometimes it hits me and I think "I'm in Oslo? What the hell am I doing in Norway??!" .

The irony is that we ended up in a tapas restaurant where the wait staff only spoke Spanish, the menus were in Spanish, and the music playing was samba.


Anyway, I don't have many pictures yet (2 or 3), but this one is a standout, so I'll leave with this one.

Boris is done! And now...

Finally, Boris Yeltsin is done. It was a somewhat successful show, although it has the potential to become very successful. In the future, we're looking at possible runs in Belgium, Brazil, Thailand, Macao and Lisbon again.

Now, it's time to finish post-production on the show and start worrying about Oslo. Actually, as with so many other things, these two are already happening at the same time. I leave for Oslo in a week and a half and I have no idea what that is going to be like... It's one of the most expensive cities in the world, supposedly, and one of the most beautiful as well. The only thing I'll probably be doing is checking out Ibsen's place, and that will probably be a fortune...
