Octopus of the North

Somehow, I lost a whole week there, going back to Scandinavia and having a horrible internet connection in the hotel. More tales to tell, but until then, a few friendly octopi.

This grapefruit-sized pair was almost $50 (each), so I didn’t even bother to convert the price of the cantaloupe-sized relative on the shelf above from kroner to dollars.

Signage from a shop that looked adorable, but was already closed by the time I walked by.

There’s a street in the capital city that I mentally call Hedgehog-House every time I walk by, and these water bottles would certainly serve that banner.

Ah kroners, still remember "How many kroners to buy her off" in Sabrina.

OMG. Must have that hedge water bottle. I bet it's $80 though

Perhaps octopi are rare in Norway, and supply and demand is having its way with their price?
