Off to the right of the Nordkapphallen is a series of sculptures designed by children from around the world. They came here and dreamed of peace, and created these sculptures dedicated to Peace on Earth. It all makes you want to light up a lava lamp and break into a chorus of "One Tin Soldier."

You know, if we could get Israelis and Palestinians up here, maybe they would be so moved by this monument that they'd stop fighting each other. In fact, if we could get Red Sox and Yankees fans here... well, I suppose I should face reality and understand that SOME things are just impossible.

DISCLAIMER: I don't own a lava lamp. Nor do I sing "One Tin Soldier" out loud (though I think I do have a copy of "Billy Jack" on VHS around here somewhere...)

Address: Nordkapp, Norway
