Oslo: Summer Scenes

Record high temperatures have been baking Oslo. Residents dressed light as they continued their daily routines across the city.

A woman temporarily falls in step with a unit in a military parade as the soldiers march through the streets of downtown Oslo, Norway. Some soldiers rode on horseback as others marched with rifles. There were two groups of soldiers playing instruments to keep the unit in step. The unit made a loop around downtown as the crowds of tourists and shop workers looked on.
