|We decided it was time to venture further afield a half-hour bus ride out of town to the Frogner Park with its 192 remarkable sculptures, comprising 650 figures, by Gustav Vigeland on the theme of Man. I noticed Alicia loitering beside one of the more erotic groups of figures and was about to comment on her new-found interest in the sculptors technique when I realised her motives were less praiseworthy. Her attention had simply been diverted by two flesh-and-blood males equally erotic looking but fully clothed, unlike the statues who slowed down to eye us and the sculptures. A farcical discussion on the artistic merits of Vigelands work degenerated into a lively verbal exchange of sexual innuendo and a date for that evening at the restaurant beneath the Holmenkollen ski jump.|
