The second place we went to that day was the Nobel Institute. This is where the Nobel Committee works and where the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize is announced every year. It was cool to get in and see the inside of the building ... some of it we see on TV every so often, but it's so cool to see places like that for real. Although it did feel a bit unreal to be standing around the table where they actually sit to discuss the nominees and decide who gets the Prize ... o_O
The bust of Nobel that stands on the lawn to the right of the entrance.
Ooh, shiny ...
The hall where the Committe's important announcements are made. The press room, I guess. :-)
The table where the discussions happen. o_O (KAS pretty psyched to be there; some random stranger on the way out.)
Some photos of famous Nobel laureates of the past.
Of course, it's not all hard work at the Nobel Institute. Sometimes they sit in the sun and relax. :-D
