Thorvald Meyers Gate in Oslo

Most every big city has it’s main thoroughfare (or two) where much of the city’s true character is revealed through
the bustle and thrum of the shops, restaurants, clubs and bars situated there. In Oslo, Norway, a place I’ve wanted to
go for years and years, that street is called Thorvald Meyers Gate (“gate,” pronounced GOT-eh, actually means street,
not, um, gate), which is the main street of Grunerlokka, one of the sections of town. Here is
an article in the IHT about Thorvald Meyers Gate
that rhapsodizes about all the great things you can see there. An array of interesting shops and restaurants, beer
halls, museums, and wide sidewalks teeming with interesting local folk, this seems like a very cool place to take a
stroll on a sunny Norwegian afternoon.
