That Oslo is a city of carnivores can perhaps be guessed from the huge tiger in the square at Oslo Central Station. And the whale meat in the supermarkets. But Tony persevered. It was quite clear that fish was regarded as a vegetable, but that didn't stop him. The Cow admired his resolve and his optimism, but wondered why he didn't just switch to a sensible diet like ice cream and chocolate.
But, while carnivores were plenty, cows were not - except on the menu of McDonalds. Which was why the Cow was so surprised to see, on the wall opposite the Schous Plass Trikk stop, a herd of happy cows.
She just hoped they were destined for something a little better than a future as a happy meal.
