The Helsfyr District in Oslo

The conference I attended was in the Helsfyr District. Yes, that's Hell's Fire or just Hellfire district. I don't know why...it's a Viking thing, I guess. After Stephanie left, I took a bus from the city center to Helsfyr where I stayed in the Scandic hotel. It was nice and they followed the tradition of impressive Norwegian breakfasts. The conference, DFRWS-EU, was held in the Norwegian National Criminal Investigation Service (KRIPOS) building, which is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. It's a very pleasant walk that goes through the Østre gravlund (east graveyard). In one area there are many, many tombstones stacked against a building. The dates are all over the place. I don't know if they're there for restoration, relocation, or what. It was odd. Maybe it's another Viking thing I wouldn't understand. I took a few pictures the first and last days I was there.
