Photographer's Note

The Norwegian's King guards parade, and blimey, they can parade!

There was a band playing full-on some sort of martial-rhapsody-craziness and the soldiers were parading like... like nothing else I've seen. Even Alice in Wonderland's royal marching cards is just a joke compared to these guards!

They were doing some sorts of complicated drills, going from lines to circles to cube etc... Slow steps, fast steps. They were stomping the grounds with their feet and rifles (playing the percussion for the music), shooting in the air throwing their guns, really crazy I tell you! Their accuracy was almost freaky!

It's almost worth going to Oslo just for it!

I heard that they are Darth Vador's troops when they parade in Star Wars, just because they are the best around...

I found this video, you can't see much, but it gives an idea!

Just found that one, pretty cool
