Meeting of the minds

Yesterday was the Christmas party for the Foreningen for Studium av Objektivismen (FSO), the association for the study of Objectivism here in Oslo. We had dinner at Stortorvets Gjæstgiveri, a restaurant situated in one of Oslo’s oldest buildings. The ceiling of the restaurant is adorned with wooden panels dating back to the 1700s.

When the food arrived, everyone checked their phones because we had chosen our courses about a month in advance and forgot what we had ordered! I had a dinner from the Christmas menu consisting of:

Smoked salmon served with caviar, salad and pumpernickel

After dinner, we continued to talk until almost 11 PM. It is so great to be able to talk about ideas with people who are interested in them – truly a meeting of the minds!

If you want to read more about Objectivism and Ayn Rand, I highly recommend checking out this (in English) and this (in Norwegian).

Enjoy your week and any upcoming parties! 🙂
