I’m in Oslo! 10 years ago I got married with my wife (I love you!) and my present for her has been this short trip to this beautiful city. This morning we have started our two days in the Norwegian capital and I have met this house while we were visiting the centre of the city.

The house is located in on of the two corners of Arbeidergata and it’s next to the Norwegian Parliament. In the other facade we can see this commemorative plaque:

The translation is something similar to:

The Mathematician NIELS HENRIK ABEL (1802-29), famous for is pioneering work on the theory of equations and the elliptic functions, lived here 1815-21.
