Travels: Americans Abroad

I spent the weekend in Oslo, where I was surprised to see a few other Americans.

First I saw Lincoln in Vigeland Park. This bust of honest Abe was given to Oslo by the people of North Dakota in 1914. I came around from the back of the bust and thought I spied a familiar chin. And I was right.

The next day, I was near Akerhus Fortress and saw this. I saw the name carved beneath the sculpture first. Otherwise I'm not sure I would have recognized it was FDR. I think the likeness needs a bit more work...

This is neat and probably gave you a nice taste of home. :)
