Nobel Peace Prize 2008

Having shown you an exterior view of Oslo City Hall, we will now go into the grand ballroom. The picture was taken on December 10, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death (Nobel Peace Prize is presented annually that day in Oslo), and you see Jonathan Mann (Canadian journalist, working for CNN International) and 2008 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Martti Ahtisaari. The picture was taken just some 5 minutes after the CNN interview.


  1. That was a big moment for Finns. The Nobel prize made sure that Martti Ahtisaari will be considered as one of the greatest Finns for a long time.

    In my Helsinki blog I'm a bit behind you as today I finally got something to be photographed that connects Ahtisaari and Finland. During the next few weeks I'm quite sure it will be shown in my daily photo blog.

  2. That's a great moment you captured there.
