one night with obama

Tonight I got to see Barack Obama!

The American president is in Oslo for one night only to receive his Nobel Peace Prize. The award is given every year in the Norwegian capital. An event like this certainly creates excitement over the city and not one to miss it, Knut and I headed to the Grand Hotel to witness Barack and Michelle Obama greet the crowd from the balcony. For more than two minutes, they stood there and waved to a 10,00015,000-strong crowd. Imagine being in the same square kilometer as the First Couple. Surreal.

On the way to dinner at a French restaurant, we spotted CNN’s Jonathan Mann reporting from Karl Johan, the capital’s main street. That’s world news broadcast in the making right there!

What a historic night.
